Lit Up Singapore 2012 is a literary arts festival held from 22nd to 29th July
2012. It aims to raise the profile of emerging artists in various fields; from photography to poetry,
drama, visual installations and architecture. This is the fourth year of the festival and it is being held
in Telok Ayer Performing Arts Centre (TAPAC), the first public arts housing space that, sadly, is
slated to close in 2013. We want to commemorate this space, and to remind people that art should still
have a valid place and voice even in our busy city. The slogan for the festival is 'Occupied Art' and
themes are memory, space and architecture. Currently there are over 20 performers and exhibitors
who will inhabit and celebrate Lit Up with us.

The festival is organised by Word Forward Singapore, a non-profit arts organisation dedicated to
developing the arts scene in Singapore primarily through spoken word and drama.
