Event description

Description

In CharChey's second reading as part of our multimedia exhibition, (pre)positions, we explore the stories of prominent Eurasians before the 1970s. Who are they? What did they do? Are they still relevant in Singapore's story today? In a survey CharChey conducted in Oct-Dec 2016, many respondents could only name Benjamin Sheares as a prominent Eurasian figure in Singapore. But he is not the only one! Come listen to the life stories of those our history books overlooked, and learn about these people with live readings, an artist talk, artist tour, and a pot-luck picnic!

In true Eurasian fashion, with a gathering, everyone offers something for the table. We will be providing some refreshments, but we invite you to bring any dish that caters to around 5-10 people. Or you can bring along some chips, finger foods, cakes, pastries, soft drinks, or a six-pack!

Please note that this is a rain or shine event, so do bring an umbrella just in case.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
(pre)position is phase two of CharChey's project, For The Record, which explores Eurasian narratives in Singapore. Phase one was a theatrical showcase, also entitled For The Record. It was presented in February 2017, and looked at identity at the individual, family and community levels.

(pre)position focuses on how identity is at times forged by a sense of place. Place sometimes hold a lot more than meets the eye. In some cases, history was made when individuals stepped up and made decisions to change them.


(pre)position is supported by Centre 42.
