iMPACT is an iMPACT(ful) event jam where you can experience a medley of art forms in the span of two days. Brought to you by Sifters Asia and Makhluk Seni, we have collaborated with so many people so that you can experience something totally new!

Experience all your emotions with the powerful performances in the poetry open mics, and be fired up with a new artform, Baloh!: A Poetry x Debate Show.

Admire the rousing illustrations and tender poetry in our walk through gallery, showcasing pieces from Makhluk Seni's poetry-illustration ebook project, PACT: Poetry Art Collaboration Time.

You can also relax and learn new skills in the art jam, while chilling with our free and easy music appreciation sessions.

If you want to bond amongst other new friends - try the table top gaming sessions with Flowers, a top micro RPG game designer with an infectiously high energy. A great fun time is guaranteed!

And - if you really want to go out and try a brand new skill? Head on down for the beat boxing class on Saturday Night. And if you want to dance it up and cool it down, bop into the dance floor at the After Party on Sunday Night.

What are you waiting for? GET TICKETS NOW, and you can experience something within your comfort zone, or jump out into new art grounds!

IMPACT Open Mic, a Collaboration with Jack It!
Feel the powerful poetry performances and tender lines from diverse array of talent from the local performers. Any performances are welcomed into this show - Poetry, music, even stand up comedy. These skillful artistes will envelope you in with all emotions, all in.

Baloh!: A Poetry x Debate Show
Poetry... and debate? Yes you heard that right! It's a debate! But in poetics. Feel that fire as you listen to this new artform as our two teams of poets battle it out onstage - all heat, all fire, one big point to make. The lineup is a strong, ensemble of poets who will exchange lines with metaphors, and try to win you over. The theme is love but the prompt will only be decided on stage. Who will win? Well, the bag is in your hands because as an audience, you too, get a say.

Music Appreciation Sessions, brought to you by Sifters Asia
Find out what's the deal with vinyl! A Sifters Asia employee will be there to assist you and guide you through the soundscape that is vinyl music. Listen to that momentary glimpse, that scratch second time travel back into the moment, these wonderful musicians played and recorded their seni for the times to come. It's almost like listening to ghosts, and equally as haunting.


[SATURDAY NIGHT]
B-B-Beatboxing Basics, a Collaboration with Beatnation
You can also learn how to Beatbox, reading time signatures and understanding flow. Beatnation's Lau, organizer and community leader will be showing you the ropes, climb and route when it comes to making fantastical sounds with your mouth, tongue and other parts of your face.
