History matters.


The bicentenary of Sir Stamford Raffles' landing in Singapore in 2019 (200 years since 1819) presents an occasion to critically reflect on Singapore's past, and look ahead to our future. Yale-NUS College hence presents The Future of Our Pasts: History Reimagined, a programme to promote greater interest in Singapore history, and to broaden our understanding of the past.

Our grant supports projects by students and recent graduates that explore less known narratives in Singapore history using creative mediums, such as theatre, art, installation, film, writing, etc. Their projects will be presented in a multi-sited public festival come February 2019.
