STAPLE is a socio-cultural magazine for the curious. It takes on themes such as growing up, from the perspective that our experiences, both collective and personal, are coloured by our social as well as cultural settings. The magazine is a compilation of precarious ideas that set out to challenge common thought on contemporary topics. Based in Singapore, the magazine is published annually.
