The character of a neighbourhood is defined by its spaces, the activities that take place at such spaces, and the people who live, work and play in each neighbourhood. The National Heritage Board (NHB)’s new Heritage Activation Node (HAN) initiative shines the spotlight on these three aspects and empowers the community to celebrate and champion the heritage of their neighbourhoods.

NHB’s HAN initiative will enable the community to celebrate and champion their
neighbourhoods’ heritage in a sustained manner through partnerships with community groups.

The First Heritage Activation Node

The inaugural HAN (HAN @ Katong-Joo Chiat) will be launched in the Katong-Joo Chiat precinct, renowned for its multicultural heritage, colourful shophouses, and heritage restaurants and eateries.

More HANs will be introduced in various neighbourhoods from this year, with each unique and tailored to the needs and characters of these neighbourhoods. 

Each HAN will showcase a neighbourhood’s unique heritage and enliven them through three complementary strands: Heritage Spaces, encompassing heritage and cultural infrastructure; Heritage Programming, including guided trails, workshops, exhibitions, etc.; and Heritage Champions, comprising volunteers who will be involved in various projects and programmes.

HAN @ Katong-Joo Chiat Launch Festival

To commemorate the inaugural HAN @ Katong-Joo Chiat, a launch festival will be held on 20 and 21 April. The festival will feature an exciting line-up of over 25 programmes co-organised with more than 20 partners across 9 locations!

Activities include a new mural at Joo Chiat Community Club, a community heritage art creation activity, a Tok Panjang experience, cultural performances, workshops, guided heritage trails, an interactive HiddenSG @ Katong-Joo Chiat game with attractive prizes, and more.

Beyond the launch festival, various offerings focused on Katong-Joo Chiat’s heritage will be available regularly!
