[LumiNation 2019] Talks – Place Histories of Kent Ridge

Kent Ridge is part of the older Pasir Panjang Ridge that straddle parallel to the old southwestern coast of Singapore. Named for the visit of British royalty, it is now associated more with the university that has nestled onto its slopes, NUS. Sited midway between the downtown area and Jurong industrial estate, it was hoped that it would serve the interests of both these areas during the days of early independent Singapore. These are, however, just some of the better-known aspects of the area’s past. This talk will discuss many more strands of histories that gave the area its distinct identities.

About Lumination

Held in conjunction with National Day, LumiNation takes centre stage in The Arts House to explore the Singaporean identity through performances, talks and more. Audiences are invited to discover and reconnect with the quieter parts of the Singaporean conversation over a weekend of thoughtfully curated programmes.

This year, LumiNation explores the theme Building Identity, putting our personal relationships with the nation in conversation with communal narratives and histories, as well as exploring the relationship between the self, place and space in creating a fuller sense of belonging.
