From 15 to 24 January 2021, the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre’s annual festival for youths returns for its first-ever hybrid edition over two weekends, with exhibitions, fashion show, silent music parties, escape games and performances in both onsite and online formats.
Experience Chinese Culture Anew
RE•MIX 2k21 invites everyone to discover how Chinese culture can be found in aspects of our daily lives – from the values we cherish, clothes we wear to the games we play.
Enrich your weekend by getting your ‘gram game on at the interactive exhibition All Walks of Love, which explores how love plays a part in Chinese Singaporean culture from cradle into adulthood. Spread the love on your Instagram feed, and snap your way through romantic backdrops and cultural icons that will bring back fond memories, such as large red eggs for baby’s full moon celebration and life-sized see-saw that signify the friendship forged in childhood.

Following which, feast your eyes on the fashion pieces from our first ever RE•MIX 2k21: Fashion Design Competition, where young Singaporeans aged 15 to 25 drew inspiration from our cultural identity to create innovative fashion pieces. If you are unable to head down to the centre, fret not as there will also be a livestream showcase of the designs shortlisted by celebrity stylist and fashion designer Keith Png, alongside celebrity Kate Pang and SCCC CEO Low Sze Wee.
For those with a knack for solving puzzles, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and take a crack at Pan!c at the Gallery – The RE•MIX Escape Game with your friends. Available in both online and offline formats, the experience takes participants to the SINGAPO人 permanent exhibition, where they will be tasked with stopping a nefarious plot through mind-boggling puzzles.

Dance enthusiasts are in for a treat with RE•MIX the Dance Livestream. Watch Singapore’s young talents face off in a battle of Mandarin tunes, and look forward to sessions by local Chinese dance artist Jenny Neo and YES 933 DJ Hazelle Teo, who will share insights on how dance has helped them to navigate the arts and entertainment industry. Whether you’re an aspiring or seasoned dancer looking to broaden your horizons, join our RE•MIX the Dance Workshop – Street Dance VS Chinese Dance for tips on how Chinese moves and music can be used in modern dance styles.
On the second weekend, get ready to laugh out loud with your favourite SGAG crew including Pam, Nadia, Brightman, Xiaoming and Maddy. SGAG Night ‘Live’ @ RE•MIX brings together these entertaining personalities as they compete against each other in an online series of high-stakes games that will test their knowledge of our distinctive Chinese Singaporean culture.
Hands-on Cultural Experiences

Rubber Stamp Carving Online Workshop, where participants can learn about the art of rubber stamp carving from local carver Baisimu; an introduction to fashion sketching at Fashion Design Illustration Online Workshop helmed by illustrator Mandy Lau; as well as The Art of Cute Doodling Online Workshop, an opportunity to pick up the secret of drawing adorable doodles from illustrator and art educator Leach.
