Projects of passion only happen with a lot of work and grit. In this conversation between two authorities of theater and the arts - Atty. Darwin Mariano and Mr. Gaurav Kripalani - we highlight the great efforts poured into these great projects; and the integral role that the arts play in times disrupted.
Take your virtual seats, join the conversation, and support the arts with the team behind Singapore's annual pinnacle performing arts festival, SIFA.

As we set our Eyes on Singapore, we hone in on how the small but mighty country is faring against COVID-19 – what’s happening and what it’s currently doing.
Join us with the Singapore Tourism Board as we offer you a reminiscent Singaporean experience through a taste of Kueh with FREE Kueh Kits; all while we hear how we’ll soon be visiting the country safely through its SG Clean Campaign and Connect@Changi.
Ms. Ruby Liu
Ruby is the head of the Singapore Tourism Board's representative office in the Philippines and leads in the marketing, promotion, and business development activities for Singapore tourism.
**Free Kueh kits will be delivered and are available only to the first 45 Asia Society Philippines members to register; and who are currently residing in Metro Manila.
The SG Clean Campaign was launched in February 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and promotes good sanitation and hygiene across all business in Singapore.
Connect@Changi is a facility near the grand Changi Airport dedicated to allowing business travelers to stay and conduct meetings without having to serve quarantine on arrival.
