For a limited period only, you can enjoy the tranquillity and nature on a lush little strip of islet off the Palawan Beach. A gentle and immersive experience, forest bathing has been demonstrated to improve one’s mental and emotional well-being. On top of tending to your mind-body-spirit through this guided sensory journey, you will also connect with nature and explore the themes of sustainability and conservation of our land and waters. The well-being of Earth and us, occurs in tandem. Finally, enjoy an eco-conscious tea before leaving the islet with your new-found sense of aliveness and peace, and a re-membering with nature.
What to expect:
- The experience takes on a slow immersive pace. It is not physical and not strenuous.
- Depending on the group size, the tour is estimated to be around 1.5 to 2.5 hours.
- A certified forest therapy guide will facilitate the experience. Nature and forest bathing invitations are suggested but are never compulsory.
- Inclusive of materials (where required), light tea and snacks.

Returning after a six-year hiatus, SeptFest is The Substation’s month-long celebration of art, culture and community, held annually to mark The Substation’s anniversary (16 Sept). Themed differently each year, SeptFest features multi and interdisciplinary programmes such as exhibitions, performances, films from Singapore and the region that highlights the diversity and experimentation spirit of The Substation.
Marking the 30th Anniversary of Singapore’s first independent home of the arts, and keeping true to The Substation’s spirit of experimentation and celebrating the alternative, The Substation will be highlighting and redefining the stories of the fringe.
Taking on the theme In The Margins, the 4-week festival curated by Co-Artistic Director, Raka Maitra, takes a closer look at the stories of the marginalised, displaced and forgotten communities who are often out of sight. In its abstract interpretation, the festival also features works that highlight the fragility and ephemeralness of spaces, or even the relationships we have with ourselves or the strangers we meet.

Returning for a 7th, socially-distanced edition, the Singapore Art Book Fair (SGABF) will host more than 70 local and international exhibitors across two locations, showcasing a wide selection of artist’s books, monographs, contemporary art editions, and other printed ephemera.
SGABF2021 features an ‘Adopt-an-Exhibitor’ programme that allows local exhibitors to share their booths with an international exhibitor of their choice, or who has been matched with them. This means we can bring international publications to you, even in the face of global travel restrictions. This edition features exhibitors from Singapore, Australia, China, Colombia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Germany, South Korea, Thailand, UK, and USA.
About the fair
The Singapore Art Book Fair (SGABF) is an independent annual multi-day event celebrating contemporary art books & zines. Founded in 2013, it was the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, and has now established itself as one of the leading art book fairs in Asia. Each edition showcases the innovative approaches of exhibitors from Singapore and around the world, including artists, designers, distributors, small presses, institutions, galleries, zinemakers, and printmakers. Free and open to the public, the fair draws thousands of visitors each year.
SGABF is committed to deepening the understanding of art books in Singapore, and encouraging the exploration of this diverse medium as a crucial, if not central aspect of art and design practices.
