Enchanting Cities

Centenary Auditorium
Singapore has always punched way above its weight. On the surface, Singapore is squeaky clean, renowned for its strict laws where littering and selling chewing gum are prohibited. But beyond the order and politeness is a lively and fascinating mix of different backgrounds. Singapore is a dichotomy. With its Colonial past evident, it is ultra-modern. Graffiti is illegal, yet a vibrant street art culture exists. The contemporary architecture looks to Art Deco influences, and its distinctive art absorbs the many cultures that make up its society. But it is so much more than banned chewing gum and Crazy Rich Asians. Join broadcaster, author and artist Claudia Chan Shaw and explore the Singapore that the country's first prime minister, Lee Kuan Yew transformed into a ‘first-world oasis in a third-world region.’
