the surrender collective

/ðə,ðɪ,ðiː səˈrɛndə kəˈlɛktɪv/ 

a collective of out-of-the-ordinary creative individuals 

surrender is proud to present our latest side project, the surrender collective: an initiative that endeavours to bring together and highlight up-and-coming, under-the-radar creative individuals who bring something different, fresh and exciting to the community. at surrender, we are all about cultivating our artistic eco-system; co-existing together harmoniously and helping one another grow in support, aspiration and mutual respect. 

for the second instalment, we talk to royce tan, founder and owner of singapore’s first rage room, the fragment room

featured on notable news portals like HYPEBEAST, the fragment room has always been on surrender’s radar as a place to check out in singapore. with different packages available which includes safety gear and breakables that you can smash to your heart’s content with baseball bats or even a supreme crowbar, stressed out customers can come here to vent in a safe, private and aesthetically pleasing environment.
