Chaired by writer and former arts correspondent Deepika Shetty, this panel brings together artists from multiple disciplines to discuss how their creative dreams and artistic ambitions evolve in relation to where they are from, and where they move to. Featuring Yarra Ileto, an Australian-born dancer now based in Singapore, Damon Chua, a Singaporean writer who left home to pursue his career in US, Tetsuro Shigematsu, a Canadian actor-filmmaker who is connected to Japan by his heritage, and Wei Leng Tay, a Singaporean visual artist who recently returned to Singapore after 20 years abroad. Each will consider how one navigates and negotiates their dreams and ambitions when in transit.

As part of the Centre For the Arts’ vision to nurture creative minds and inquiring spirits, the NUS Arts Festival presents Critical Conversations – a series of talks and panel discussions aimed at deepening the discourse and engagement with the themes raised during the festival.
