Dear Members & Friends,

Join us for a guided tour with Charlotte Chu to explore some interesting places in the Little India.

‚ÄúStreet art can make a city feel like an open-air gallery‚ÄĚ Conde Nest Traveller

Not so long ago, painting on walls was considered criminal. Thankfully, we have put those days behind and our streets have come alive with bright colourful murals.  

The colourful street scenes and trades of Little India provide the perfect backdrop and inspiration for many of the murals; there are over 40 murals in the thoroughfares and side streets.

Through their vibrant and lively brush strokes, established artists, students, migrant workers and the community in Little India, have shared with us the heritage of this historical district and the contributions made by the early immigrants. Come on the tour to hear about what the various animals, shapes and objects in the murals tell us about the beliefs and culture of the Indian community. 

The tour will end near Little India MRT, where you can stay on for lunch (optional).

There will be lots of walking, so put on comfortable shoes, bring a bottle of water and also an umbrella just in case.

Date: Saturday 2nd of October 2021

Meeting point: Above ground of Exit E of Little India MRT 

Time: 9.30 am to 1 pm

Fees: $45 for Members, $60 for non-Members

Kind regards,
Carole
