‘ReNEWed’ features the artistic work, research projects, outreach endeavours and educational ideals of SEADOM 30 Under 30 artists. In this showcase, these innovative musicians question how past values and traditions may be re-evaluated and rediscovered. Through honest dialogues, they seek to identify and overcome prejudices between the old and new. Guided by a strong desire to serve the community around them, they will attempt to show how the above juxtapositions can actually be opportunities in the Southeast Asian musical context. Hosted by Anothai Nithibhon and Khoo Hui Ling, alongside provocateur Bernard Lanskey, ‘ReNEWed’ comprises three sessions, each inspired by a quote.
