The Single Screen, Block 43 Malan Road

Spearheaded by the Singapore government, the “Smart Nation” initiative aims at creating a data-driven network that will enhance citizens’ lives and foster stronger communities by promoting participatory democracy and civic engagement. How does this project reflect the unstable and heterogeneous demographics of a global city? How will this attempt at participatory democracy account for the transient but sizable population of low-wage workers whose data are often missing or withheld?

Aaron Maniam and Stephanie Chok will address these questions from their respective points of view in a conversation organized and moderated by Artist-in-Residence Ho Rui An.
