Nearly a year on, I still think abou tthe energy and impact of the festival - where else can you find such a beautiful marriage of cultural heritage and design?"

Pixie Tan, Creative Collaborator

Street of Clans is a testament to houw a festival could contribute to an authentic Singapore story with rich heritage and culture."
