The migrant worker poetry competition seeks to celebrate the literary talents of migrant workers in Singapore and provide them with a platform for direct expression!
This is a free event.
Seating at the venue is limited, and on a first-come, first-serve basis, we will try to accommodate all attendees. However, a ticket does not guarantee you a seat at the event. Please come early to avoid disappointment. Thank you!
First held in 2014, the Migrant Worker Poetry Competition has quickly established itself as one of the key events in the cultural calendar in Singapore.
This year, we celebrate the 10th edition of the competition, and we will continue to reach out to a larger group of migrant workers. We believe that this project has become particularly relevant given the continued special circumstances faced by low-wage migrants in Singapore.
Our sponsors and partners include The Embassy of The United States in Singapore, The Good Shop, The National Library (Venue Sponsor), and ThinkRaw.
The Migrant Worker Poetry Competition is part of the Global Migrant Festival.
