ITI Director T. Sasitharan and Board Member Tan Tarn How were discussants for Singapore International Festival of Arts' opening forum, Art as Res Publicae. Sasi also provided the closing speech for the evening. Other speakers included Reverend Miak Siew, Choo Zheng Xi, Dr June Yap, Alfian Sa’at, Imran Taib and Dr Ad Maulod.

"When has art ever caused a revolution or toppled governments or even corporations?

Art can change nothing.
But art can change people.
And people can change the world."

"The artist's job is to speak truth to power, to cast out doubt. To believe in the common humanity of all mankind."
