Description of Programme

Singapore prides itself as being multi-cultural, multi-religious and multi-racial – a fact that needs constant work! Care, trust and a common identity allows the many different communities to practice their traditions and religions in very close proximity to each other without tensions and discrimination. Singaporeans have overcame the racial riot, intimidating, discriminating and disturbing use of Social Media safeguarding the fundamentals of Singapore’s society – peace and equality! Join us to explore the historic Bras Basah area (Middle Road, Bencoolen, Waterloo and Queen Streets) and learn about how nearly all the major religions (Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Islam) are practiced in this small precinct and how the communities coped with restrictions imposed by COVID-19. Highlights: Maghain Aboth Jewish Synagogue, ‘Gallery Walk’ at the Old Catholic High School, Church of Saints Peter & Paul, Kuan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple, Sri Krishna Temple, Bencoolen Mosque
