Organised by the National Youth Council, steered by a committee made up of head honchos of the various Youth Sector Organisations, Corporate and Public Agency Partners, NYC management and representatives from youth organisations and executed by a Youth Organising Committee consisting of volunteers, this festival will be a spectacular event, happening from...

Initiated in 2005, SHINE Youth Festival is a platform for youths between the age of 15 and 35 to indulge in their passion.

Highlights include Live Performances, Exhibitions, Workshops, Competitions and Forums across many interests, including creative and performing arts, sports and adventure, community issues, technology and business.

4 Marquee Partners










1. Mascot Parade: COSMO 2011, Cosplay Show

What I found interesting is the PILLOW FIGHT happening right at *SCAPE.
I can't wait to see how interesting the entire area would be like on that day!

Being a Corporate Communications major student, I have been learning all about the Media. I'm glad to be able to experience the real thing today!& so always, before an actual event, there will always be a media event & in this case, it is the Media Conference...




It started with witty emcee, Annabelle Francis in my opinion who had a great personality and her own style in hosting, being a natural in bringing life to the entire media conference.

Up next was the sharing session by the Steering Committee.


It was a sharing session by Mr Martin Tan (Chairperson) and Mr Eric Chua (Co-Chairperson), telling us how this whole event came about, the details of the festival happening on 2nd July & how far SHINE! Youth Festival has come in the pass few years.

Come next weekend, *SCAPE will be transformed into the most happening place in town with levels of partying for YOUTHS to hang out at!


As you scroll down in this blogpost, you will be able to see the activities that will be occuring on the event day itself!

Last but not least, an initiative by SMU students from the club (Inspirar).

Some student representives cheerfully demonstrated the creative exercise that they came up with to help the elderlys exercise, even in their seats!

I think it's a very considerate initiative because alot of elderlys cannot do exercise because they are simply too weak. With this exercise, they are now able to still stay healthy!

Also, we were treated to a series of magic tricks by Magician, Mr Kiki Tay. He was comical and I felt he did more acting (Miming) than magic.

262107_10150300658673665_706803664_9014458_4425333_n

One of it I found interesting is the fact that he could EAT FIRE. Yes, FIRE!!!

Thank You!

The after-event activities included:

1. Computer Games

This is SHINE's facebook game called 'Power 2 Shine', which was only unveiled today!
We were the privelege group to be able to try playing it!

In the game, the player is supposed to jump from levels to levels and kill zombies that he/she encounters along the way, while trying to complete the mission of collecting the 'National Youth Council's' logo-icon. Sounds easy right? Most people would be able to play it WELL... BUT...

I'm an exception because... I'm really bad at coordinating my hands and brains -.- so I didn't master that game.

Nevertheless, it was a fun experience!
