"Points of Departure is a creative project, supported by irememberSG Fund, seeking to create new narratives from collective memories focused on our relationship with the sea through time.

For the past 6 months, the team has been actively collecting stories, salvaging old photographs from flea markets, conducting field trips and interviewing individuals who used to live by the sea and on outlying islands! Lots of fun that they’re having- read the article for the team’s exciting adventure of capturing memories people living or spending their time in islands and the shores of Singapore:

The team is also appealing to all of you for help! They are looking out for people who worked in ports, shipyards, lighthouses, fish farms or are involved in patrolling the coast and seas such as coast guards and navy for interviews! So if you know someone who’ve worked in these areas, please refer them to Points of Departure team!"

Thank you, irememberSG!
