Singapo人: Discovering Chinese Singaporean Culture
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Culture vultures rejoice – another cultural institution has reopened this Phase 2. Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) resumes activity on July 13, kickstarting with its inaugural permanent exhibition Singapo人: Discovering Chinese Singaporean Culture. Debuted in March this year, the exhibition explores what it means to be uniquely Chinese Singaporean by looking into the heritage, cultural interactions, and public policies that have shaped the community.
Journey through five specially curated interactive zones that spotlight elements that contributed to the distinctive Chinese Singaporean identity – from food, language, and traditions to popular culture and music. The exhibition features precious loans from iconic local personalities like Stefanie Sun and Anthony Chen, alongside interesting contributions from the community.
To ensure the safety of all, safety guidelines are to be followed. This includes wearing a mask and keeping a distance of at least one metre between groups. All exhibition visitors are also provided with disposable gloves.
Beyond the centre, SCCC is also introducing a series of online offerings including the SCCC YouTube Channel where you can discover lesser-known stories behind the local customs and traditions, as well as relive the Centre's past programmes. The popular TGIF Music Station has since resumed with a refreshed digital format, live streaming performances by local artists every fortnight via SCCC's Facebook page. Over at the SCCC website, you can explore a modern reimagination of traditional Chinese myths and legends as Re-mix's popular Urban Art Exhibition goes online.
Before you head out to the cultural centre, note that the opening times are slightly different during Phase 2. The exhibition is open from 2pm to 8pm on Mondays, and 10am to 8pm from Tuesday to Sunday. Admission is free. For more information, visit singaporeccc.org.sg.
