Organised by Arts House Limited, Textures, the annual literary festival that celebrates Singapore literature (SingLit), returns once again from 19 – 28 January 2024 at The Arts House, in conjunction with the Light to Night Festival and Singapore Art Week (SAW). Featuring an array of multidisciplinary SingLit-related programmes and showcases that respond to the theme ‘Reimagine’, Textures transports all visitors to a world where words come alive against the backdrop of other artistic practices and disciplines, casting a spotlight on the literary works that are closest to home.

Textures 2024 The Arts House

From captivating interdisciplinary performances presented by notable local artists like Hafidz Rahman, Marc Nair, Sudhee Liao, Mantravine, Audrey Ng, Low Zi Hao, and more, to enchanting art installations by homegrown visual artists including Justin Loke and Knuckles & Notch that speak of the constancy of literature and its richness and diversity amidst the ever-changing digitised world. Fresh perspectives and exciting encounters with SingLit texts are a promise at the festival.

Expect to be introduced to a diverse genre of books by both local and international writers at the pop-up bookstore by Chio Books or spook your socks off while attending the multisensorial theatrical experience of iconic Singapore horror stories. A range of family-friendly literary fun awaits you at Textures 2024!
