The Bicentennial Experience

The Singapore Bicentennial is a prequel to SG50 and is an opportunity for Singaporeans to look deeply at the country’s history within the context of time and space. In terms of time, Singapore’s history is a 700-year journey going back 500 years before 1819, and forward 200 years to 2019. The commemoration is an opportunity for Singaporeans to reflect on the traits- openness, multiculturalism and self-determination that have evolved with us throughout history and are now embedded in the Singaporean DNA.
