ribellione NANYANG ARTS FESTIVAL

2014

NTU Cultural Activities Club


For the first time, the festival will have its very own Flea Market featuring handmade items which will be held alongside an exciting line-up of bands from the local Arts Scene. Also, the Nanyang Arts Showcase has expanded its outreach to bands from the various Halls of Residence.

welcome

On behalf of my team, it is with great pleasure that we present to you NAF 2014! We urge you to be part of this journey and may you find joy and excitement in the Arts as much as we do.

In its 12th year running, the Nanyang Arts Festival is proud to bring you another exciting season of the Arts! To compliment the rising influence of the Arts Scene to Singapore’s development, the Nanyang Arts Festival aims to be part of this by bringing the Arts to NTU, and at the same time, provide more platforms for all to showcase their talents.

Rie Ong Chairperson On behalf of the Nanyang Arts Festival Organising Committee 2014


In its 12th edition, the theme for Nanyang Arts Festival 2014 is RibellionĂŠ, the Italian word for “Rebellionâ€?. The Arts push boundaries in many areas, while the use of the Italian term brings us back to the period known as the Italian Renaissance, where there was a widespread revival of the Arts in Europe. Likewise, we hope this theme would also inspire a revival of the Arts in NTU. Look forward to a festival that goes against the norms through various means such as cross-cultural performances, unique workshops and mind-boggling installations. In essence, we believe that the theme would not only encourage students of NTU to understand the versatility of the Arts but at the same time inspire and ignite a greater interest towards the Arts scene at large.
