By Singapore Institute of Architects & Fellow Conversationalists
Description

CONVERSATION THEME: WHAT FUTURE?

ARCHIFEST 2015 presents: CONVERSATIONS - a series of informal short presentations by speakers from various backgrounds, followed by an open chatter session with the audience! The Conversations will happen on 02 and 09 October (Friday nights) from 7.00 pm - 830 pm.


Speakers will offer their take on the Archifest theme "What Future?", to share their own unique and thoughtful interpretation. It can be about issues related to their work, interests and ideas. For example, issues pertaining to collaboration, spaces in Singapore, local creative enterprises, et al.

Open-ended, eclectic, whimsical, future-proof, artistic, voyeuristic, we welcome them all.


After seeing the presentations, audience members and speakers can openly chatter about their interests, ask questions, offer opinions. Let's have an exchange, a chat, a conversation!


9 Oct Fri | 7.00 pm - 8.30 pm

(session starts around 7.00 pm, do arrive early and grab a snack!)
