The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a nation-wide project run by the National Library Board of Singapore,  aiming to  document memories from across the country.

They’ve built a website to allow Singaporeans to create an account and deposit their memories and stories into the collection. The project then creates linkages, connecting contributors with shared memories and similar experiences.

The project has already collected nearly 420,000 memories in the form of texts, images, as well as audio or video files. It aims to:

  • Get as many people as possible taking part in the history of their family, streets, country and world.
  • Bring communities together around local history and help people feel closer to the place they live in.
  • Get people from different generations talking more, sharing more and coming together more often.
  • Converge to open up global archives for everyone to enjoy.

You can check out their website to view the memories collected so far or share your memories of Singapore.
