“Prism” was the theme for this year’s SMU Arts Festival, and it was a theme befitting this year’s offering. Over two weeks in September 2015, Arts Fest (as we like to call it) showcased brilliant performances from the full spectrum of arts clubs here at SMU. Many of these performances and workshops were joint productions between two or more clubs at SMU, collaborating to create something new, fresh and memorable.
What was it like organising an arts festival for 25 clubs– each with their own unique flavour of the arts? How do you encourage and foster a spirit of collaboration? We catch up with Joy Aw, the chairperson of Arts Fest 2015, and her team to find out more about what it was like.
