How does one research and write the 50-year history of a Singaporean society or group when few founding members are to be found, and there was never an official office to store its records and files?

Fuelled with enthusiasm but few records, Patricia Welch embarks on a journey of discovery as she unravels the history of the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society (SEACS), which revealed not only their story but also how this small Singapore society had made a global impact.

About the Speaker
Patricia Welch, a 25-year resident of Singapore, and recent President of SEACS, started with the proverbial blank piece of paper. Her lessons learned can provide a roadmap to other organisations who may be considering similar projects as she shares the resources she found at the National Archives, Singapore and elsewhere.
