First dd held in 2010, this biennial event has been staged three times at Marina Bay, the heart of Singapore’s city centre.

Some of these include incorporating sustainable elements in the design and production of artworks, activities, programmes and campaigns. The Switch Off, Turn Up Campaign is one of the examples of the initiatives undertaken.
