Through Nian Hua, associated art forms, as well as social memories gathered first-hand, a local millennial Lynn Wong shares her journey in rediscovering the Qixi festival which has disappeared in Singapore for over half a century. She will explore the lesser-known aspects of this festival that was once even grander than the Lunar New Year, and discuss how youths can help revive and reimagine it.
Lynn Wong is on a mission to uncover, document, and revive Singapore’s disappearing foods, festivals, and heritage. Her research focuses on the Chinese diaspora in Singapore and their involvement in historical places of worship, clan associations, as well as everyday customs.
