If there’s one event of the Singapore Arts Week that all the cool kids will be at, we’re betting it’s the Aliwal Urban Art Festival. Happening on 19 January from 4pm till late, the festival at Aliwal Arts Centre will introduce you to Singapore’s blossoming talents in graffiti, graphic art, skateboarding, dancing and more! Packed with live performances and exhibitions, the festival is one street culture enthusiasts should not miss. Highlights include a kids’ street dance audition, a live graffiti painting show, and music by indie bands. Let them inspire you to unleash your own creative side, by joining the workshops on silversmithing, skateboarding and more. End the day right feasting and shopping for more art at the bazaar.
