StoryFest 2023, organised by Arts House Limited and The Storytelling Centre Limited, presents Story Walk, an outdoor roving storytelling experience in partnership with Civic District’s new public art trail, Benchmarks. Rediscover a side of the Singapore River as you stroll (and sit!) while listening to tales told by storytellers.

Story Walk takes participants on an imaginative storytelling journey inspired by some of our most iconic monuments and public spaces. Taking cues from three commissioned public art benches, each storyteller will share a unique tale weaving local history with folklore. These tales bring to light the interconnectedness between the bench artworks, their surroundings, and the rich heritage of the district.

Pause, ponder, and play! Complete the inspiring journey by exploring your creativity through a paper-folding activity. Embellish your designs with linocut prints and take home your own mini art bench. Discover SingLit literary gems printed on the back of your original sketch postcard.

Story Walk is conceptualised by Kamini Ramachandran featuring stories created by Verena Tay. These stories are brought to life by storytellers Wesley Leon Aroozoo, Laura Kee and Hafiz Rashid. The craft activity includes original sketches by Victor Emmanuel and Stellah Lim.

Families with children (ages 6 – 8 years) are recommended to attend the morning sessions whilst the evening sessions are tailored for adult participants.

A digital iteration of the programme will also be available next January as part of Light to Night 2024. Stay tuned for updates!
