Our SG50 Wishes

http://oursg50wishes.tumblr.com is our project for the occasion of Singapore’s 50th year of Independence, aka SG50. Check it out!

It’s a collection of wishes for Singapore from more than a hundred of our friends in the arts, culture and civil society communities here. We hope their heartfelt wishes will inspire you to think about what you wish Singapore can be and how you can help create that.

Happy SG50 and Majulah Singapura!
