City Stories: Digital Placemaking and Public History
27 January @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Developed by Nanyang Technological University’s School of Art, Design, and Media, and supported by the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore, “City Stories” is a community storytelling platform and online resource on the multicultural identity and evolution of Telok Ayer and Amoy streets.
“City Stories” lets viewers discover the evolution of these streets, select individual shophouses to uncover their stories, and explore the transformation of the area from Singapore’s shoreline to skyline through maps.
This project aims to show how Chinatown has historically been home to multiple ethnic communities beyond the Chinese, and whose everyday activities have created a more complex understanding of place and public history in the city.
