Heritage x Community
Heritage is a powerful tool that can unite communities, create a sense of belonging and strengthen social bonds. By embracing the practices, beliefs and histories of diverse communities in Singapore, we can appreciate their distinctiveness while celebrating our shared humanity.
Using heritage to develop common ground across communities has always been part of our core mission. By engaging people in heritage-related activities and discussions, we can promote empathy and mutual respect within and across communities, particularly in a time when differences can lead to hostility and intolerance. In this next phase, we aim to create even greater access to heritage all around Singapore, and enable it to form bridges between Singaporeans from all walks of life.
Going forward, we want to further equip Singaporeans from diverse backgrounds to jointly create heritage-related content and projects. We believe that heritage belongs to everyone, and we want to empower and engage Singaporeans to tell our stories and advocate for our rich multicultural identities. With greater co-ownership of our heritage, Singaporeans will feel more invested in promoting and celebrating our histories, and we as a society can be collectively enriched by a richer well of experiences and insights, and build a better future together.
