About Jette & Ilo

Jette is a former stylist and photographer who, after the birth of her daughter in 2018, decided that something within the female wellness industry had to change, specifically menstrual health. She founded ilo as an empowering educator to help girls and boys, women and men understand menstrual health and menstrual cycles. Mainstream sanitary products are loaded with known carcinogens and toxins and have more recently been linked to fertility issues, hormonal problems and endometriosis. On average you'll have your period for 6 days a month, 12 months a year for over 40 years - a very long tie to put does after does of chemicals and known toxins into your body. Jette's company ilo, provides 100% organic cotton sanitary products which are free from chemicals and toxins which means they're safe and non toxic for your body but also 100% biodegradable which means great for the environment as over 100billion sanitary products are thrown away globally each year.

ilo believes that everyone should have access to safe and non toxic menstrual products and that's why we donate 50% of our profits back to fighting period poverty. Make the change for your body and the environment today. Join ilo and be the change.

Heue: Work In Progress Exhibition

WIP FB Banner-04.png

It’s taken us a while, but we’re finally ready to introduce to the world our resident artist, Sam Auditeur. Going by the artist moniker of Heue, Sam creates art in various mediums documenting the stories of those in between estrangement and reconciliation. Her childhood dream of colour-grading the world is now being harnessed with a brush in hand. She paints abstraction as a type of portraiture, mirroring the narratives of her encounters with people and places. Her obsession with colours remedy nostalgia and are a retrospect to surviving this beautiful madness that is life.

Sam has been a part of our little Moon family since January 2019, and over multiple cups of coffee and quiet conversations in her mezzanine studio, she’s put together a show. Titled ‘Work In Progress’, the series will be her last batch of canvas works for a while and we’d be thrilled for you to join in on the opening night, have a drink, and enjoy the art.

Doors open at 7 pm, on the 30th of March.

Women birthed us, women raised us, but somehow we’re still earning $0.75 to the dollar as compared to men? Not okay.

Connect and be inspired by fantastic leaders through our interactive panel sessions or hands-on workshops from the likes of Visa, Braze, Kantar, Eight Inc., Accenture, Newton Chase and some Singapore's most prominent women's organisations including Crazycat & Girls in Tech - Singapore!

Inspiration is at the core of who we are, so expect to meet poets, writers, singers and strummers!

Grab a bite at the festival, and enjoy The Moon's pop-up library featuring pioneering female authors and their rebellious short stories, or visit Project X - Singapore's art exhibition featuring the unheard voices of a marginalised community from Singapore. You can expect short musical performances by Babes Pregnancy Crisis Support Ltd, a support program that helps pregnant teenagers in Singapore.

So pop on down for a browse, a swap, or just lounge the afternoon away with us on The Moon. This is a free event, and all are welcome! We hope to see you there.

VOGON POETRY NIGHT AT THE MOON: 
A CELEBRATION OF EXTREMELY BAD POETRY

HOSTED BY Illi and Joses Ho 
FEATURING: Ng Yi-Sheng, Kok Wei Liang, Jennifer Champion, Shivram Gopinath, Atiq Lukman, Anukriti Banerjee & Stephanie Dogfoot 

WHAT? 
Vogons are an alien race known for creating extremely bad poetry. Described by the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy as ‘not evil, just bad-tempered and bureaucratic’ they are responsible for having the 3rd worst poetry in the world and using this to torture people. 

On November 16, come to The Moon for a celebration of the all bad poetry we’ve all written and kept locked away, and most toe-curlingly awful, so-bad-it’s-almost-good rhymes found in Singapore. 

OPEN MIC!
Come join our open mic and bring your awful teenage angst-poems, hilariously bad haikus, your sloppy sonnets, your wretched rhyme schemes, your vomit-worthy verse….and you get the idea. But come at your own risk! People at Vogon poetry readings have been known to gnaw their own legs off. Open micers get 5 minutes. Sign up below! 

ENTRY: $5
