Walking Tour: There Was a Road Here

The shape of a walking route can reveal the heterogeneity of a neighbourhood and debunk official histories or state-endorsed historical narratives that gloss over nuances. With the aid of old and new street maps, participants will come to understand how 'mapping' is a cultural activity that reveals or conceals complexity. Participants will be given tips on ‘reading’ maps and buildings in the urban landscape. The route will straddle neighbourhoods of historical significance that lie between Serangoon Road and Beach Road. This walk is an attempt to retrace fragmented urban parcels and reclaim lost narratives.

About the Tour Leader:
Vikas Kailankaje is a lecturer in Design Communication at the LASALLE College of the Arts. Outside of his design practice and teaching, Vikas leads walking tours that draw upon local issues and historical intrigue.
