Yanling grew up immersed in the performing arts as a hobby, and things took a serious turn towards arts management when she joined the Singapore Arts Festival team 2010-2012. Armed with a marketing degree from the National University of Singapore, several years of experience in the local advertising and creative industry, and some on-stage time as a performer, she hopes to make good her skills in promoting local arts. Yanling joined Centre 42 as its Marketing & Communications Manager when it was first established in 2014. She oversaw the development of C42’s brand identity and communications and was integral to building its foundation as a theatre development space and intermediary. She is excited by the depth of Singapore theatre history, and the diversity of local talent in Singapore.
