+65 Volume 1 - Home

+65 is an annual journal published by the Founders’ Memorial. This journal looks at Singapore’s post-independence history and society, how this history is interpreted, represented and remembered, and the ethos of modern Singapore as shaped by its founding history. It also explores the relationship between national policy and lived experiences through visual culture, artefacts from the National Collection and personal stories. Through these discoveries and reflections, we hope to present a cross-generational perspective and draw connections between post-independence history and its present-day impact and relevance.

In this inaugural issue, we explore the theme of "Home" and the various ways it can be understood. Read about the National Loyalty Week in 1959, local films in the 1960s, National Day songs and the HDB's first few years, and check out exclusive interviews with Professor Chua Beng Huat and pioneering female politician Madam Hoe Puay Choo.
