In light of the potential sale of People’s Park Complex and People’s Park Centre, this year’s Basic Photojournalism class from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI) in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is holding a photo exhibition titled “Shifus of People’s Park” that aims to shed light on intangible cultural heritage in People’s Park Complex, such as the history and traditional trades in the area.
The photo exhibition will be held at Miss Chinatown, a newly-opened bar fusing the rich culture of Chinatown with a modern dining experience, located at the rooftop of the multi-storey carpark at People’s Park Complex. With this location, we aim to reach out to youths and young adults aged 16-35 years-old, to drive discussions about conservation needs in Singapore.
The exhibition will feature nine photo essays of profiles who have mastered a trade at People’s Park Complex and People’s Park Food Centre such as knife sharpeners, jewellery makers, textile owners and hawkers. There will also be a special feature on a young artist living in a People’s Park Complex residential unit.
Venue: Miss Chinatown, 1 Park Rd, #06-00, People’s Park Complex
When: 17 - 18 Nov 2018, 9am - 8pm
