Did you know that the Rollei 35 LED camera, recognised both locally and abroad for its quality, is a proudly made-in-Singapore product that became a household name way back in the 1970s? Rollei was one of the international companies that set up operations in Singapore during our industrialisation years when our founding leaders pursued a bold vision of transforming our economy. To achieve this, we had to show the world that Singapore was open for business. This was an uphill task for small, land-scarce Singapore, and our first generation of leaders and people had to be resilient in the face of challenges, while remaining open and adaptable to new opportunities.
The Share Your Story, Shape Our Memorial travelling exhibition that features a public call for artefacts and stories will present Singapore’s nation-building years, and introduce some of our founding values that will anchor the Memorial’s content. The travelling exhibition will kick off at Gardens by the Bay on 28 April 2022, before travelling to various locations around the island, including shopping malls, community hubs, libraries and schools, till February 2023. An online version of the travelling exhibition will also be available on the Founders’ Memorial website to enable greater access.
