Singapore Heritage Festival at the National Museum
Documenting: Serangoon Road
23 Mar – 30 Apr
The Concourse, Level 1
Each district in Singapore has its own unique history as experienced through the lives of those who live, work and play there. As Singapore evolves, we face the challenge and opportunity to keep our identity in tandem with developing as a nation. We need to manage change, and to find different ways to retain the collective memories that we have of these places.
In 2017, a group of students from various backgrounds embarked on a year-long project to document Serangoon Rd. They were guided by professional photographers – Darren Soh, Chia Aik Beng, Bernice Wong and Philipp Aldrup, who also selected the photographs that are on display for this exhibition. Discover this historic district through the Documenting: Serangoon Road photographic collaboration between the Urban Redevelopment Authority and the National Youth Achievement Award Young Photographers Network. The exhibition is held exclusively at the National Museum of Singapore.
