The statues of these Malay literary pioneers still adorn the Singapore River. This panel discusses the imagery related to this pioneering group as captured in Malay poetry and prose. How have their attitudes and contributions attracted and inspired our writers? The embodiment and treatment of these figures in Malay literary works opens up interesting questions on approach and perspective.

SWF 2019: A LANGUAGE OF OUR OWN
This year they invite you to join us in considering all the ways in which the verbal, physical and visual languages we use every day affect how we see the world. Language heals and language hurts. Language can tie down and language can transform. In a world that is so simultaneously connected and fractured, who has language left behind? What has language taught us about the past and how must language evolve to accommodate a changing humanity.
