You’ve probably heard the story, Attack of the Swordfish, while growing up. It’s a fascinating legend of how Red Hill earned its name. As such legends are also a part of Singapore’s rich cultural heritage, Heritage Tales, a digital storytelling initiative, hopes to spread it, especially to the younger generations. And they’ve come up with an unconventional way to do so.
The National Heritage Board invites you to join in the storytelling session of Attack of the Swordfish, narrated by local artiste Benjamin Kheng, by acting out five scenes within the story! Contribute the video of your acting via Facebook or Instagram by 13 May 2020. The final storytelling video featuring public contributions will be unveiled on 19 May
