via Straits Times, 29 July 2022: A country-wide public consultation is underway as the National Heritage Board of Singapore is putting together a new five-year national heritage plan to begin in 2023.
A space for crafts in Armenian Street, initiatives to promote Singapore’s history abroad and a national collection of local designs are among ideas being considered for the nation’s next heritage masterplan.
From Friday (July 29) until Nov 30, the public can submit feedback on these ideas and propose their own to the National Heritage Board (NHB).
The board is currently working on Our SG Heritage Plan 2.0 – a five-year plan for the museum and heritage sector that will be launched in 2023.
Since the start of 2021, NHB has engaged more than 650 stakeholders, partners, enthusiasts, and creatives in over 50 focus group discussions, where they pieced together a structure for the new five-year plan.
The structure comprises four focus areas – community, identity, industry and innovation.
