What is it like growing up in Singapore, and what makes Singapore home? Ask any of us that question, and memories of the games played in school, long queues at hawker centres, or moments of collective celebration or crisis may come to mind.
If you have personal photographs or memories that vividly capture these moments and experiences, share them with the National Museum of Singapore for potential display in its upcoming exhibition, Home, Truly: Growing Up with Singapore, 1950s to the Present.
Home, Truly is presented in collaboration with The Straits Times and explores moments and experiences in our history that express our identity and collective memory as Singaporeans. Featuring archival photographs, artefacts and digital interactives, the exhibition aims to encourage reflection and conversation on what it means to be Singaporean, and include opportunities for the public to contribute their stories. Home, Truly will be held at the National Museum’s Stamford Gallery from August 2020 to February 2021.
In addition to potentially being featured in the exhibition, contributors also stand to win attractive prizes such as Shangri-La staycations, photography masterclasses by The Straits Times, and exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences at The Straits Times.
