Heritage Project

The Heritage Project is a significant effort to preserve and promote the vibrant Indian art and culture that has thrived in Singapore for centuries. This initiative seeks to document and showcase the unique aspects of this rich heritage through various mediums, including photographs, videos, exhibitions, and interactive displays.

The Indian community in Singapore has a long and fascinating history, with its roots dating back to the colonial era when Indian laborers were brought to the island to work on the plantations. Over time, this community grew and flourished, creating a rich tapestry of cultural traditions that are still celebrated and cherished today.

The Heritage Project seeks to capture this unique cultural legacy and make it accessible to all. It will provide an opportunity for people to learn about the rich history, art, and customs of Singapore's Indian community, and to appreciate the contributions they have made to the country's cultural fabric.

Through the Heritage Project, visitors will be able to explore the vibrant and diverse cultural traditions of the Indian community in Singapore, from their music and dance to their fashion and cuisine. They will also have the chance to interact with members of the community and learn about their experiences, stories, and customs.

The Heritage Project is an exciting initiative that promises to celebrate the unique cultural heritage of Singapore's Indian community and to promote greater understanding and appreciation of this rich and diverse cultural legacy. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting project.

    Our Beginnings

    Singapore Kairalee Kala Nilayam (SKKN) ), is one of the oldest non-profit Indian organizations which was formed in 1956 primarily to promote Indian Culture, Fine Arts and Sports  among Indian residents in the Republic of Singapore. The secondary objective was to assist other welfare societies or social organisations whose objectives are the promotion of  social welfare or Indian Culture and Fine Arts.

    SKKN was very active in the 1950s through 1980s. With the unconditional support and restless efforts of the local talents, SKKN was able to stage about 250 Dramas in Singapore and Malaysia. In addition, prominent drama troupes from Kerala were invited by SKKN to stage their masterpiece dramas in Singapore. SKKN was privileged to be a part of the first ever National Day parade of independent Singapore.
