SCCC, SPH Chinese Media Group renew MOU on Chinese-Singaporean culture promotion
Under the renewed MOU, the two institutions are to conduct four large-scale events.
The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) and SPH Media Trust’s (SMT) Chinese Media Group (CMG) have agreed to continue promoting the Chinese Singaporean culture for another two years.
Under its renewed memorandum of understanding (MOU) — signed by Low Sze Wee, CEO of SCCC, and Lee Huay Leng, editor-in-chief of SMT’s CMG — the two institutions will be holding several events to promote Singapore’s cultural and creative scenes.
These events include four large-scale talks/performances or screenings which replaced the monthly intimate creative workshops in the previous MOU signed in 2017.
Between the talks, four smaller size creative workshops will be held “to allow the public to reflect on and appreciate the creative culture in Singapore through different event formats.”
The first major talk to be held on 9 April 2022 will explore how community spaces like HDB void decks have been transformed into creative spaces too, SPH Media Trust said.
Interested members of the public can sign up for the talk at: http://zbccs-voiddeck.sphevents.com.sg.
Other talks and performances that the public can look forward to include an interracial performance combining dikir barat — a style of Malay choral singing — and 24 Chinese festive drums; and a session exploring the different features of local Chinese dialect folk songs.
SCCC and SPH CMG will also continue to conduct its SIngaroe Creator Festival this year at the end of July to give the public an opportunity to “visit the creative flea market and participate in various talks, workshops and sharing sessions.”
