Singapore will be commemorating the Bicentennial in 2019 - a series of activities which will expand the understanding of our history beyond 1819, beginning even earlier at 1299. As part of the year-long commemoration efforts, Chingay Parade 2019 will open with a 270-m long painting tracing the "Past, Present and Future of Singapore".
For the first time, a moving tableau of paintings by a group of multi-ethnic artists will flow through the entire parade route, inviting reflection from all on Singapore's storied journey through time, charting its transformation from place to nation.
The Chingay 2019 Community Engagement Programme (CEP) invites all Singaporeans and residents of Singapore to contribute to the painting through a generous sharing of your aspirations and vision for the future Singapore. The artists will draw inspiration from your submissions to create the painting on "Future Singapore".
