Time Out says
Get a dose of Singapore's arts and culture right from your sweet digs with #SGCultureAnywhere. Launched by the National Arts Council (NAC), the campaign encourages all to find a cosy spot at home and tune in to a myriad of digital offerings spotlighting local music, dance, theatre, heritage, and culture.
Bringing the best of local performing arts, NAC recently launched a brand new online series From the Living Room where 30 different Singaporean artists and groups serenade, entertain and inspire home audiences directly from their own humble abodes. Joining the #SGCultureAnywhere bandwagon is the National Heritage Board (NHB). But instead of live performances, expect virtual heritage tours and exhibitions loaded with the sights, sounds, and stories of Singapore.
For your heritage fix, start your adventure online via root.sg where you'll find virtual guided tours, rare footage, and exclusive interviews of everything from museum secrets to lesser-known stories about our island. Check out An Old New World: Digital Exhibition where you get to delve into Singapore's past before the arrival of the Europeans, From the Coromandel Coast to the Straits – Revisiting Our Tamil Heritage where you discover new facets of Tamil heritage, the Orchard Heritage Trail where you can learn more about the famous street beyond its shopping malls and hotels.
The NHB is also taking its upcoming cultural events and programmes to the virtual sphere, so look forward to Hari Raya activities such Ramadan Together and #OnxOnRayaFest, as well as Wan Qing Dumpling Festival and Singapore Heritage Festival.
While museums, theatres, and art galleries take a brief interlude during the circuit breaker, the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign makes a great alternative for everyone to explore Singapore's arts and culture without leaving the house. For more stay-home inspiration, hit up NAC's The A-List where you can find plenty more programmes available as part of the campaign. The best bit? You can experience it all anytime, anywhere, while staying at home, of course.
