Storytelling and experiencing it will mean so much more than just showing. The underserved population will probably not have any intention of visiting museums and festivals as these serve no meaning to them. If stories could be shared with them at young age, they will show more interest in public activities and festivals!

Introduce career opportunities for more archaeologists and heritage workers and include discussions on Singapore’s identity through education and information. Have events and activities that utilises old places and museums, combine VR technology to educate the public on the developments of the area.
