SAD Bar Open Call

Do you question the rights to public space? Do you care about access, both social and spatial, to the city-state around us? Do these issues matter to you?

To facilitate these pent up passions and thoughts, we are offering a peculiar underground space called the SAD Bar in The Substation for you to unleash this conversation through an event to take place from September to December 2019. The event must be in line with our programme theme of A Public Square

Whether it is a film screening, a literary reading, or a forum, all you need to do is send us a proposal. An honorarium of $1500 will be given to selected proposals to realise your critical and interrogative event.

Please note that only selected recipients will be notified.

*Before the excitement dies down, and you click apply now, please read the submission requirements and guidelines here. It contains useful information and will guide you to the pot of gold and one-time access to organise an event at a peculiar space. Please note that the SAD Bar is not available for use on 7 December and from 23 to 31 December 2019.
