More than just a medium for creative expression, the literary arts has been an emotional safe space for the LGBT+ community. At various times of our lives, those words, though penned by others, were witnesses to our inner thoughts; they affirmed, encouraged, commiserated and celebrated with us.
Co-organised by Sing Lit Station and Qu'est-ce Que C'est Design for Pink Fest 2019, To Bear Clear Witness is a screen print exhibition that pays homage to five LGBT+ writers / artists – Stephanie “Dogfoot” Chan, Tania De Rozario, Norah Lea, Ng Yi-Sheng, JY Yang – who have been critically important in the literary history in Singapore.
Co-organised by Qu'est-ce Que C'est Design and Sing Lit Station, To Bear Clear Witness screen print jam sessions are organised in conjunction with the screen print exhibition. During the jam sessions, participants may be inspired by the writings of these five LGBT+ writers through the exhibition to create their very own screen printed poster.
$28 per participant will be required for participation. Screen printing supplies and A3 paper will be provided for the screen print jam but feel free to bring along totebags and t-shirts that you may wish to print on as well! Just sign up, drop in and have fun!
Limited to 30 participants per day. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
