All ears at the 2007 Noise Singapore arts festival

Giving young artists a voice at the Noise Singapore 2007It was a heady night in Singapore. But the look on everybody’s face, in attendance for the 2007 Noise Singapore arts festival launch, it was the best smile in the world. There was much to see and hear, and there was nobody hurt. The night proved portentous of the present youth culture in Singapore that was given voice at the Noise arts festival.

Noise Singapore gets to a loud start in Heeren Shops, SingaporeThe Noise Singapore is an annual fete of arts and culture that stars the young guns of the Singapore arts intelligentsia. Started in 2005, Noise Singapore had since laid out the platform for the emerging movers of the Singapore arts scene, enabling Singaporeans and Singapore visitors alike to feel the noise that the young Singapore arts scene is making.

In the run up to the final leg of the 2007 Noise Singapore arts festival, Orchard Road yet again turned festive this December with live performances, arts exhibits, and workshops on Gibson Guitars and beatboxing by Noise Singapore artists.

Festivities are appropriately centered on the Heeren Shops at the junction of the Orchard Road and the Fort Canning area. With the greens of the Fort Canning as backdrop, the increasing popularity of the Noise Singapore is being heard and now beckons like the Emerald City in Singapore.

The Fort Canning is likewise a backpackers’ district in Singapore, where vacation breaks are well within the means of most Singapore visitors. At the center of the Fort Canning greens lies the YWCA Fort Canning Lodge, a low-cost hotel run and owned by the YWCA Singapore. That doesn’t mean, however, that Singapore visitors get the short end of the straw at the hotel in Singapore YWCA Fort Canning Lodge.YWCA Fort Canning Lodge

With rates starting at SGD82, the YWCA Fort Canning Lodge is easily one of the cheapest hotels in Singapore. But it is also one of the Singapore hotels with a prime hotel address. The Singapore hotel of the YWCA is located deep in the lush neighborhood of Fort Canning, and complements the location with plush hotel facilities.
