“CausewayExchange holds the vision of a future that forms a closer relationship between the next generation of Singaporeans and Malaysians through a holistic and reciprocal arts and culture based programme. We were encouraged by the response from CausewayExchange 2010 and we envision this initiative to be one where the relationship between the two countries is strengthened through collaboration and dialogue that takes place through the arts,” says Lyndon Yeo, Director of ACES.
