IMPACT : A Two Day Event Jam


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 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!
