Singapore: 2015 will be a momentous year as Singapore marks the 50th Anniversary of its independence. To be part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Singapore, the Malayalee residents of Singapore plan to organise several activities in 2015. All registered Malayalee organisations of Singapore will be coming together for organising these events; a Steering Committee was formed with members of all these organisations to coordinate the events. See below few ideas that are being considered by the steering committee
Week/Month long celebrations with a grand finale event after National Day to showcase Malayalam arts and culture
Honoring pioneer Malayalee pioneers who had largely contributed to Singapore and to publish Coffee Table Booklet and Documentary on Malayalees’ contributions in the past 50 years.
Create a major art work on a single large canvas by Malayalee artists in Singapore
Fund raising for bursary or charities in the name of Singapore Malayalee community
Set up Malayalam Library or donate 5000 Malayalam books to National Library etc.
