Description

Dear Friends of the Birthday Collective,

It's that time of the year again! As we approach Singapore's 53rd Birthday, the Collective has assembled 53 new contributors for this year's edition of The Birthday Book, which is centred around the theme of The Roads We Take.

For newer friends, The Birthday Book is an annual publication that (usually) coincides with National Day to develop and collect innovative and diverse ideas, viewpoints, opinions, lessons and responses to conversations about Singapore- her past, present, people and future.

As we wove together this year's edition of the book, we were also involved in several other initiatives. In line with our efforts to reach a wider audience and get more people interested in taking part in meaningful conversations, the Collective has a video competition brewing with the folks at ITE that will end in October and we've also been working on a children's version of the book, aimed at young ones aged 6-12yo. Our writers have also been visiting secondary and pre-university educational institutions to discuss their essays with students, and we aim to invite a considerable number of them to this year's book launch.

We promise that you’d have an engaging time: from panel discussions to a rare chance to pick the brains of a roomful of socially interested, aware and plugged in crowd. So hope to see you there!
