Sikhs in Singapore – A Story Untold is IHC’s second community co-created exhibition, and it showcases the heritage and culture of the Sikh community in Singapore. Originating from the Punjab region of the Indian subcontinent, the Sikh community in Singapore is part of the larger global Sikh diaspora that emerged in the late 19th century.
The exhibition will offer insights into this small but prominent Singapore Indian community, from their history and culture, to their evolution and place in modern Singapore. The tangible and intangible aspects of their identity will be shared through artefacts, photographs, and the stories and voices of the community. The exhibition will also offer glimpses of the community’s root culture and events that led to their diasporic movement to Southeast Asia.
