Singapore Festival captures the imagination, taste buds of revellers

ArtHop by Nandar Aung

Over the past few years residents and regular visitors to Yangon have witnessed the slow but steady transformation of some of the city’s back alleys from dingy, rubbish-strewn and mosquito-infested spaces, into vibrant children’s  playgrounds and photo locations for adults.

Closed and dirty parks have also been transformed into recreational places for both the young and the old alike.

Thanks to the Yangon regional government’s openness to cooperating with international and local non-government organisations, the city is slowly becoming a hive of activity for both local and international events, once again becoming a fun city it used to be as.

Originally published on 5 October 2018

A career in the arts was something unexpected for Mr. Khairuddin Hori, Curatorial Director and Partner at Chan + Hori Contemporary (previously known as Chan Hampe Galleries). “I was always interested in the arts and was exposed to it mainly through accompanying my eldest sister attend arts and culture events,” shares Mr Hori. “But it was when I was 16 that I was dragged to participate in traditional performing arts events and later, introduced to students from LASALLE and artists from The Artists Village by two of my best friends. It was then that I seriously thought about it.”
