Vision & Mission
Founded in 2010 as a heritage non-profit organisation, My Community is an independent entity promoting and propagating community heritage in Singapore.
Preserving the common man story for our collective memory
My Community celebrates the valuable yet often overlooked everyday aspects of neighbourhood life and aims to connect people to social networks within a community by nurturing collective memories and encouraging the emergence and development of personal narratives.
Research and document social memories
We conduct community-based participatory research and establish community archives to preserve the social memories of Singapore’s various communities.
Celebrate our shared culture and heritage
We set up community museums, co-create exhibitions and organise participatory programmes, festivals and guided tours to celebrate our shared culture and heritage.
Champion greater community involvement in cultural management and urban governance
We champion greater community involvement in cultural management and urban governance through community architecture, participatory design and heritage assessments.
