Heritage Hacks

A group of final year arts business management students from Ngee Ann Polytechnic have put together five how-to guides for SHF2021 to equip the everyday person with the means to document and share their heritage stories.

You will walk away with the basic skills required to put together cookbooks, photo essays, podcasts and even videos on your favourite heritage subjects.

These guides are short, simple and a whole lot of fun to put into action! Take your pick from the following downloadable guides to kickstart your heritage adventure!

Heritage Hack 1: Capture Your Heritage
Capture Your Heritage is a fun and simple guide which will equip you with the skills to create your very own photo essay. Follow our steps to create a memorable, thematic look at, say, the neighbourhood you grew up in.

Heritage Hack 2: Hear to Share
Hear to Share will teach you how to produce your own podcast. Start by collating heritage stories. Thereafter, edit and string them together to create your very own unique podcast series!

Heritage Hack 3: Show Your Culture
Show Your Culture will teach you how to put together a snazzy video chronicling and showcasing elements of Singapore’s distinct cultural heritage. For instance, learn how to capture your favourite hawkers in action as they cook up a storm or tape your traditional tailor putting together an ethnic outfit.

Heritage Hack 4: Taste of Singapore
Taste of Singapore takes you through the process of creating a food journal. Populate the diary with a list of your favourite local fare from your go-to food places. Grab a friend or bring your family along as you hunt down the best restaurants and hawker stalls in Singapore!

Heritage Hack 5: The Family Cookbook
The Family Cookbook will show you how to put together a publication that documents your family’s food heritage, favourite recipes and food-related stories. Gather both young and old members of the family to create a memorable and one-of-a-kind “heirloom” cookbook.
