Celebrating five years of CEX with 10 days of originals works by
inspirational artists from both sides of the causeway. Come and let your senses feast on the
exceptional, the extraordinary, and the exhilarating. Some of Malaysia’s best entertainers, artists
and writers are set to take Singapore by storm from 13 – 22 June as part of CausewayEXchange
(CEX) arts festival.
CausewayEXchange (CEX) created in 2010 is a joint arts and culture initiative between
Singapore and Malaysia that aims to serve as the premier exchange platform between the arts
and creative communities of Singapore and Malaysia. The festival aims to foster greater
collaborations among young and well-established artists from both countries. Held annually, the
festival celebrates the arts not only by showcasing performances and masterpieces but also by
giving practitioners and audiences a chance to participate in educational workshops conducted
by professionals. Since the first festival held in 2010, CEX has successfully commissioned,
collaborated and supported more than 150 projects ranging from visual arts to performing arts
to mixed media.
For its fifth edition , the multi-disciplinary arts festival aims to increase support towards the
arts from the public, bridge communities, and expand its audience base. Art exhibitions, staged
productions, comedy shows and interactive programmes are lined up throughout this 10-day
celebration for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The festival continues to facilitate greater
opportunities and awareness for cultural exchange programmes for both countries through
artistic, social and lifestyle activities.
CEX is represented this year by Malaysian writers, painters, comedians, musicians, and theatre
practioners. With wushu, edgy stand-up comedy, theatre performances, visual arts shows,
music and films, there will be something for everyone.
