About Per°Form Open Academy of Arts and Activations

(POA) returns for its second iteration in April 2024. It is a live gathering of 15 Per°Form Fellows from the Global South—Africa, Arab world, Asia, and South America. These fellows, intersectional practitioners across diverse disciplines of activism, film, fashion, design, curation, research, education, visual culture, spoken word, performance, will present their strategies for activating contexts and communities. The 15th Per°Form Fellow from Singapore is Endless Return, a visceral platform of ravers - performance, dance, sound, and conceptual artists - known for their raw, irreverent, unexpected, and migratory pop-up parties.
With an 18-day programming, this year's POA expands its range beyond keynotes, workshops and the marathon to include Per°Form Open Academy Rave and Per°Form Open Academy Studios.
