Adrian Tan Obituary, Death – The passing of Mr. Adrian Tan, Board Member of Arts House Limited (AHL), whose genuine love for books and his important contributions to our creative world will continue to inspire future generations, has left us feeling very heartbroken. His contributions to our creative world were crucial, and his true love for books will continue to inspire future generations. Adrian had a huge influence on the literary landscape of our time, and his writing made an indelible mark on the minds of those who read it. The literary scene of our time was profoundly shaped by Adrian.
His contributions, particularly his best-selling novels “The Teenage Textbook” and “The Teenage Workbook,” helped him achieve fame, and they were subsequently adapted into a film and a television series. His writings have also been rendered in Japanese translations. In addition to these, Adrian has served on the Board of Directors of the AHL since June 2021, during which time he has provided advice on matters pertaining to the law.
Not only did Adrian’s insightful views and leadership as the Chairman of the AHL Programming Committee help to the success of the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) and the Singapore Writers Festival (SWF), but they also contributed to the success of other festivals and programs that were hosted at AHL venues. Both of these festivals are held in Singapore. The AHL Programming Committee reported to Adrian, who served as its chair. During this trying time, we would like for the family, friends, and loved ones of Adrian to know that they are in our thoughts and that we extend our deepest condolences to them for the loss of Adrian. Everyone here is going to miss Adrian very, very much.
