Made-In-Singapore Arts Head to Cuscaden Bar & Bistro

Drinks, art, board games, and comics–experience all of these in one place at Cuscaden Bar & Bistro on Saturday, August 20 from 5PM to 12MN!

Check out local comics, art, and board games as Made-In-Singapore (MiSG) continues across the weekends of August, this time nesting in the chill atmosphere of Cuscaden Bar & Bistro.

Featuring locally produced content such as Singaporean superhero comic Crimson Star, WW2-set graphic novella HERO, recent Kickstarter hit board game Mercurial and more, Cuscaden allows patrons and supporters to chill out as they explore some of the newest offerings the Singaporean indie arts scene has yielded in recent years.

Additionally, enjoy twice the amount of elixir (that’s our geeky way of saying ‘drinks’) with Cuscaden’s 1-for-1 house pour jugs! Those who partake in this 1-for-1 special will be entitled to a 20% discount off the Made-In-Singapore offerings, as well as for any pre-orders for upcoming projects taken during the event.

Made-In-Singapore’s third weekend follows a launch at Orange & Teal and a subsequent week of installations and creative sharing at multiple locations such as Catalyst Tattoo, Print De Creation, and the Comic Embassy at Tekka Place.

Made-In-Singapore returns following an extended hiatus due to the pandemic, and is an effort by local non-profit arts organisation The Fandom Menace, to highlight Singapore-based talents during the country’s National Day month. Featuring both content and content creators, the event also includes spotlights on Singapore-made projects new and old, and across multiple genres.

More on this effort can be learned on The Fandom Menace’s Instagram, as well as on the CS Comics Facebook page.

Co-organiser CS Comics has launched multiple original comic book content this year, beginning with HERO, based on a short story by local teacher Leroy Lam. The successful Kickstarter campaign was followed by the launch of Singapore’s first made-for-Singapore by Singapore superhero graphic novel Crimson Star: Book One – Supernova.
