Meet Star Wars’ Kelly Marie Tran and More at Apple’s Orchard Road Store

When Apple’s Orchard Road store opened earlier this year, it promised to be more than just a mere retail store. So far, that promise has been kept. Photography talks, design discussions, and coding lessons have been conducted since then, and this week is no different, with a slew of exciting activities planned out for Apple fans.
For instance, there will be an exclusive talk held by Kelly Marie Tran of Star Wars fame on Nov 26 from 1pm to 2pm. The budding actress, who plays a maintenance worker in the upcoming film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will share her inspirational journey with Buro 24/7’s Norman Tan, with a Q&A session open to the floor right after.

On Nov 25 from 3pm to 4pm, local filmmakers Boo Junfeng and Kirsten Tan will talk about their respective journeys as part of the Singapore International Film Festival, and what the future holds for Singapore’s cinema. There’ll also be a Q&A session after the discussion, so it’s a good opportunity for aspiring filmmakers to get a tip or two.

Lastly, in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Urban Sketchers – a global community of artists that practice drawing on location in cities where they live, artist Don Low will take participants on a walk through Orchard Road, where he’ll show you his favourite techniques on an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. This will happen on Nov 30 from 4pm to 6pm.
