These light modules made from upcycled cookie containers and solar lights are co-created by local artist @LeeYunQin and underserved communities. The units are designed and individually painted by beneficiaries from social service agency Brighton Connection based on two themes: “In the Woods” and “In the Deep”.
The installation reflects a collective hope for a better future for Singaporeans and for Singapore as they further ease COVID-19 community measures.
Istana Kampong Glam, also Istana Kampong Gelam, is a former Malay palace in Singapore, located near Masjid Sultan in Kampong Glam.
The palace and compounds were refurbished into the Malay Heritage Centre in 2004.
Officially opened by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in June 2005, the Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) provides wonderful cultural exposure and learning opportunities for visitors of all ages and interests.
The Centre acts as a vital heritage institution for the Malay community in Singapore. Through its exhibits, programmes and activities, the Centre hopes to honour the past while providing a means for present-day expression.
