BODY, HEART & SOUL
Marina Central District (Millenia Walk, South Beach and Suntec City) March to November
Experience a multi-concept event headlined by an interactive installation designed by Dr Jason Lim of Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and Ar Asami Takahashi of YUME Architects, in collaboration with Tinkertanker. An intricate crystal lattice is artfully assembled out of more than 1,200 four-point-knots to channel light and create an illusory world of reflections and colour as it responds to human presence and gestures, transforming and taking on new forms with each movement they make. There will also be workshops, popup shops and events, and art exhibitions.
Visitors will also be encouraged to make their mark on the installation with their Instagram photos by tagging @marinacentralsg.

CLOOP FASHION SWAP
Crane, 46 Kim Yam Road 7-8 May 11am-5pm
In 2020, Singapore generated 137,000 tonnes of textile and leather waste, and only 4% of this waste was recycled. One way to help reduce the waste, you can swap your clothes instead of buying new ones. Join the fun that is clothes swapping – shopping without spending! You will need to bring a minimum of five clothing items that are clean and in good condition to take part; you will be able to swap them for up to 10 new items.
To sign up for the event, go to Cloop Fashion Swap.
