Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore in 1819, but maps dating as far back as 1602 already mark the existence of our island-state, indicating its long-standing importance in trade and politics.

The National Library presents Geo|Graphic: Celebrating maps and their stories, a series of curated exhibitions and programmes that will showcase how Singapore and the region around it have evolved through hundreds of rare and original maps and creative art pieces. From 16 January to 19 July 2015, visitors can explore the exhibition’s five levels and have a look at the history of Singapore and Southeast Asia from the explorer’s perspective.

GeoGraphic: Celebrating maps and their stories is made up of four main exhibitions:
– Mind the Gap: Mapping the Other – Level 7, 8 and 9
– Land of Gold and Spices: Early Maps of Southeast Asia and Singapore – Level 10
– Island of Stories: Singapore Maps – Level 11
– SEA STATE 8 SEABOOK | An Art Project by Charles Lim – Level 11
