Produced by art and technology collective GOWAAA, the filter allows users to try on stunning fashion and jewelry masterpieces in the Museum’s collection. A second interactive filter, ACM’s Multicultural Questions, also challenges users to put their knowledge to the test through an engaging trivia quiz on selected artifacts.

DigiMuse Presents: Circuit Breaker Edition

As part of ongoing efforts to develop a vibrant museum and heritage scene in Singapore, as well as to provide opportunities for local creatives during the Circuit Breaker period, the National Heritage Board (NHB) launched a special DigiMuse Presents: Circuit Breaker Edition open call earlier in May, as part of its larger DigiMuse initiative.

The DigiMuse Presents: Circuit Breaker Edition open call invited local creatives, including freelancers, companies, or everyday Singaporeans, to take inspiration from Singapore’s heritage and pitch fun and innovative ideas that could be translated into bite-sized digital content and nimbly delivered on NHB’s digital platforms for Singaporeans.
