I am deeply honoured to be invited by NLB to speak at their international conference - When Nations Remember.
This two-day event brings together renowed international and local speakers who will share with us their work on the creation and preservation of memories. From the programme outline, day 1 will be sharing and discussion of memory-building initiatives from an institutional perspective. Day 2 will have a more local flavour where sharing and discussion will be based on personal and community perspectives.
I will be co-presenting with Chun See - local heritage blogger of Good Morning Yesterday fame - in the morning session 0900 - 0930. From 1345 - 1500, we will have an Up Close session with the audience. Our focus will be on capturing memories through blogs.
As a panel speaker, I get to participate in the different sessions - free of charge. Lunch and tea breaks are provided and there is even a conference dinner on the evening of the first day.
Though it is a conference, not all activities are conducted within the hotel. Do look out for these walking tours which participants can sign up:
- Mad About Singapore Buses
- How The City Built Itself
- Kampong Nostalgia
- Singapore Brands
- Vanishing Sights and Trades of Singapore
- Behind Street Names
