|Concorde skate co
Hello, I’m Farid, a Business owner and skateboarder from Singapore. I recently started my own company called Concorde skate co and with this I’m hoping to help put Singapore as a skateboarding destination on the world map. I love travelling, meeting new people and learning something new anytime I have the opportunity to do so. I would say that I’m friendly, open minded, easy going and super laid back.

|3pm-4pm: Exploring Creativity|
Cheryl Tan loves to doodle monsters. In her world, she reimagines grotesque monsters as colourful creatures that can bring joy and delight. She struggles to understand her emotions from an intellectual perspective and to share the colourful world of her mind, and uses yarn and fibre art as a medium to check in on her mental state as well as to express herself creatively.
Cheryl runs KAIJUU Fibers, a hand-dyed yarn business with the mission of spreading positivity, self-acceptance, and living loud and proud.
Esther is a watercolour and digital artist who loves painting animals. During the Circuit Breaker in 2020, she started her art journey in painting by taking up online art courses which helped her break out of the work-from-home routine at the time.
She is a resourceful, creative, and dynamic individual who enjoys finding new ways to make connections across ideas, processes, spaces and people, and believes in living life being open to serendipitous encounters.
She hopes to create a brand that embodies the idea of home — a place filled with delightful objects, and where one can feel safe to explore and play. She hopes to be able to encourage others to explore their creative sides and to find their authentic selves in the process too.
