2021 Museum Roundtable: Eurasian Heritage Centre

 
"The Eurasian Heritage Gallery encapsulates the rich history and culture of the small but vibrant Eurasian community in Singapore who have contributed to nation-building since the 1800s. The blend of European and Asian led to an ever-evolving unique Eurasian culture. Some have even traced their family trees back fourteen generations to the 1600s!"

2021 Museum Roundtable: Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

 
 
"Originally known as Wan Qing Yuan, this villa was bought by Teo Eng Hock in 1905 as a retirement home for his mother’s twilight years. He later offered the villa to Dr. Sun for his revolutionary activities. It was in this villa that Dr. Sun planned three uprisings before the successful Wuchang Uprising of 1911."

"The Memorial Hall also shares how the 1911 Revolution left its lasting imprint on Singapore, especially in the areas of education, print media and economic contributions.  This Singapore and Nanyang-centred focus is what sets the Memorial Hall apart from other museums and institutions dedicated to the legacy of Dr. Sun Yat Sen around the world."

2021 Museum Roundtable: Cosmicwander by SAM

CosmicWander Founder Choy Ka Fai packed his bags a few years ago, and set out on an extensive research trip across Asia. His goal: to learn about dance, shamanism and the supernatural. 

The 18-month adventure led Ka Fai to remote mountains, rolling hills, dynamic cities and close encounters with more than 50 spirit mediums. On his journeys, the wanderer witnessed fascinating rituals and ceremonies, and experienced altered states of consciousness. Returning with inspiring stories about spirituality and transcendence, he speculates on alternative modes of knowing and being as well as realms of reality other than our own.

"How do we perceive the world today in all its seen, unseen, and imagined dimensions? Does the body continue to play the role of a medium to connect with our surroundings and an archive for personal/collective memories, or has it dissolved into a digital stream of virtual consciousness?"
