Heritage has long been associated with history textbooks in schools, and lengthy discussions between academics. However, in a rapidly-developing and globalised Singapore, the age-old concept of heritage has also undergone the winds of change. New Age of Heritage examines the new face of Singapore’s heritage. More than just feeling nostalgic, more Singaporeans are coming up with new and innovative uses and ways of living with the past — from selling heritage-themed merchandise, making films on forgotten landmarks, to incorporating Korean hit Gangnam Style into Peranakan folk songs. Through the perspectives of businessmen to designers to collectors, New Age of Heritage celebrates the future of our past.
