DigiMuse Presents: Virtual Showcase

Bringing together artists, cultural practitioners and technologists, DigiMuse, an initiative launched in 2017, is designed to tap the world of digital content and technologies for new means and ways to engage with and present Singapore’s culture and heritage.

In 2020, local creatives as well as everyday Singaporeans were invited to participate in the initiative’s Circuit Breaker Edition. This gave rise to a stable of innovative virtual products such as artefact-inspired cooking videos, Augmented Reality (AR) adventures and interactive, role-playing games.

Join us here as we share with you some highlights from our virtual showcase.

DigiMuse 2021 - 2022

For our 2021-2022 edition of the Open Call, DigiMuse invited artists, technologists, and culture professionals to thoughtfully layer on the rich culture of the Kampong Gelam precinct and showcase unique aspects of its heritage. Through their combination of technological innovation and storytelling, the DigiMuse awardees help us explore new experiences and rediscover a familiar part of our history.
