Trading Stories: Conversations with Six Pioneering Tradesmen is a community exhibition on old trades in Singapore and how tradesmen have coped with the challenge of changing times. Featuring the lives of six individuals who have made their living as a traditional goldsmith, a movie poster painter, a tukang urut or Malay confinement lady, a Samsui woman, a poultry farmer and a letter writer, this exhibition sheds light on some of Singapore’s old trades through their personal stories – stories of sacrifices and struggles, of passion and fortitude, of entrepreneurial courage and adaptability.

This community exhibition also features numerous community contributions such as the loan of private keepsakes, locally produced documentaries and a community photography exhibit on old local trades. Members of the public are invited to contribute to the exhibition by sharing their personal memories and stories of old trades in Singapore.
