Speaker: Melissa Diagana and Jyoti Angresh

In many ways, the story of Fort Canning Hill parallels the transformation of Singapore from a small trading town to today's vibrant, cosmopolitan city. From 14th century gold jewellery to 19th century paintings to 21st century sketches, from stone bas-reliefs to the ASEAN sculpture garden to temporary art installations, all manner of art relating to Fort Canning Hill can be found and help to tell its captivating story. Jyoti and Melissa fell in love with history and plant-filled Fort Canning Hill during their frequent outings there, and decided that only by writing a book could they satisfy their curiosity and shine a light upon this wonderful place.
