Things are starting to heat up as we draw closer to the last quarter of the year! This week, we find ourselves caught in the winds of change; there are farewells to be made, music to be danced, conversations to be had, food to be eaten, and craft sake to be drunk – who’s up for it?

In fast-paced Singapore where convenience is the name of the game, we rarely think of slowing down. Be it food or fashion — how and where would the concept of sustainability fit in the local context? Join The Wedge and The Fashion Pulpit for a documentary screening and discussion panel on the topic of sustainable fashion. What are our responsibilities as consumers? What is the ultimate cost of taking the easy way out? Find out, in the name of fashion (and some food).  

Wedge 29: Are we fashionably sustainable? will be happening on Wednesday, 26 September at 31 Bukit Pasoh Rd from 6.30pm – 9.30pm. Tickets available here at $26.

Oh, how we hate saying goodbye to great local spaces. Three years since its discreet opening at Golden Mile Complex, the Great Escape is going out with a bang. On Friday, get pumped as the Kampong Boogie crew will be throwing down a no-frills rooftop carpark discotheque celebration. It’s a bittersweet mix of nostalgic celebration with cheap drinks and good music: funk, soul, tropical, house, disco, hip-hop…it’s not the end unless the beat says so!

The Last Escape will be happening on Friday, 28 September at Golden Mile Tower from 9pm till late. Entry before 10pm is free. Cover charge at $15 (cash only).
