Time Out says

Led by youths, this event aims to celebrate the aspirations of youths who are shaping the Somerset Belt into a vibrant communal space. Featuring over 20 ground-up projects, some of them include Gotong Royong, Tunes of Somerset Belt and Parkour @ The Belt. Catch Tunes of Somerset Belt, a concert which tells the story of five individuals who have been contributing to the landscape of Somerset Belt through original music pieces inspired by their stories. At Parkour @ The Belt, participants learn how to engage in high-intensity sports like parkour with safety in mind. This project features competitions, performances, workshops, and challenges for all fitness levels to provide an accessible and safe space for youths to discover and explore parkour. Gotong Royong, which refers to the spirit of volunteerism, encourages youth to bond regardless of racial and cultural backgrounds. It integrates aspects of Malay culture into new technology with dance challenges, traditional games and arts and crafts. The exhibition consists of three parts, namely Shared Hardships, which will tap on Malay music, Reflection, which will showcase Malay motifs and batik, and Stronger Together, a dikir barat performance.
