NEW ANGLES / NEW WORKS
feat. KIRSTEN HAN, GRACE YEOH and RUBY THIAGARAJAN

In recent years, journalism in Singapore has found itself adopting newer moulds and bolder formats — with stronger, sturdier convictions. NEW ANGLES is particularly interested in seeing how new, alternative journalism might persist and press on in Singapore.

The final edition of NEW WORKS will feature writers Kirsten Han of New Naratif, Grace Yeoh of Rice Media, and Ruby Thiagarajan of Mynah Magazine, each speaking on the roles they play in their respective publications, as well as their hopes and dreams for the future.

The event begins at 5pm; door opens at 4.30pm. There will be a Q&A session after the presentations. Prior registration will be required ($15 / person), and ticket-holders will be prioritised over walk-ins; all money earned will go towards paying our speakers and feeding our cat. We’ll serve lots of tea.
