Following our successful Workshop Grant with Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) last year, Singapore Heritage Society and IPA are partnering again to offer a second grant to participate in the 12th Edition of the IPA Mentorship Program commencing in August 2016.
The IPA Mentorship Program is an intensive 3-month program by Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) for those who wish to further their personal photographic vision and goals. The aim is for mentees to conceive, continue or finish a photo project or series as a method to strengthen their photography and understand the concerns of their individual practice.
The IPA X SHS Photo Mentorship Grant recipient will be encouraged to investigate and interpret history (local or national, private or public), topography, community and locality to author creative site-responsive projects using photography as a medium.
Participants may choose to work on a place or neighbourhood in Singapore of personal significance, or a site of national heritage or historical interest. Research material, be they family or public archives, text, drawings and photographs, serve as raw ingredients to meditate and author the individual responses.
Our previous grant was awarded to filmmaker Clarice Lee and her final project The Island of Everlasting Utility was presented by Singapore Heritage Society at the Ubin Day 2016 community event in Pulau Ubin.
The grant recipient will be mentored by Kevin WY Lee, founder of Invisible Photographer Asia. More information about the IPA Mentorship Program: http://invisiblephotographer.asia/ipamentorship/

WHAT OUR PAST INTERNS SAY
“My greatest takeaway from this internship was to gain an insider exposure to area of heritage advocacy in Singapore. The internship helped me understand the organizational and leadership challenges faced by a non-profit advocacy organization (e.g. How to work with manpower and budget constraints, how to inspire general public to be more interested in heritage-related issues). It also made me realize that heritage and national development may not be opposite poles in a zero-sum game, and that win-win solutions do exist. Effective placemaking can bring people back to neglected spaces and develop a sense of ownership – this is an outcome that can serve different interests, whether they are heritage or commercial-related interests.” — Leong Chao Yang (May-Sep 2015), NUS Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences valedictorian 2015.
“Being in SHS led me to meet or at least know of many others who are involved in heritage, from students like myself to activists, academics and enthusiasts who simply share heritage-related events and information excitedly whenever they can. Apart from them being warm and friendly, I learned a lot from these people both in terms of concrete, academic knowledge and the seemingly endless amounts of energy they put into finding out about what they love and advocating for heritage despite exhausting schedules and obstacles faced in advocacy.” — Wong Kwang Lin (May-Sep 2015), currently a 1st year undergraduate in Anthropology at London School of Economics
“During my time with SHS, what I found the most meaningful was seeing the blossoming of relationships – between people and heritage, as well as within a community of people interested in heritage. One of my most vivid memories is my participation in Picturing Chinatown, where a group of people from different walks of life came together to explore their personal relationships to Chinatown through photography. I enjoyed the probing questions that were raised, as well as the soulful stories that were shared. Towards the end of the workshops, I found that despite growing up in a place that seems to suffer from amnesia on many levels, I can cultivate a sort of personal belonging towards this place through making the effort to discover more. Furthermore, one of the most rewarding things about this internship was seeing the emergence of a community of like-minded souls who meet to go on photography walks and talks months after the end of the workshops. Their energy and enthusiasm is very heartening.” — Leong Yee Ting (Jan-Sep 2015), currently a 1st year undergraduate in History at Oxford University
