Transformation of Ancestral Veneration Practices and Challenges to Preserving Tangible Heritage of the Singaporean Chinese Community: A Case of Century-Old Kinship-Based Clan Associations

Beyond filial piety, ancestral veneration takes on broader societal functions and is a key intangible cultural heritage of clan associations. Using century-old kinship-based clan associations in Singapore as case studies, we examine changes in such cultural practices over time, identify key contributing factors, as well as highlight challenges and opportunities for the continued transmission of this intangible cultural heritage. Selected manuscripts and artefacts documented during the research will be shown during the talk.

This talk is part of the Cultural Heritage of Singapore’s Over-100-Years-Old Kinship-Based Clan Associations research project funded by SCCC. The project documents the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of selected clan associations.
