Other Tongues is a Youth Poet Ambassador public programme and is the final programme in poet, Pooja Nansi’s tenure as the inaugural Youth Poet Ambassador (YPA) from 2017 to 2018.
Other Tongues is a literary festival that centers voices from minority communities in Singapore. The Festival is invested in promoting diversity by encouraging and empowering young people from minority communities across language groups to participate actively in the literary scene.
Other Tongues believes deeply in the power of text-based work to create constructive dialogue across language groups about issues facing young people within minority communities in Singapore today.
The festival runs over two days, from Friday to Saturday, December 7th to 8th, and features performances, panels and workshops in multiple locations around the Kampong Glam and Little India areas, including The Projector, Haque Centre for Acting and Creativity and our venue supporter, Sing Lit Station.
