About the Project: Ghost Stories Archive
For many of us, the initiation to the world of Singapore ghost stories is usually through the introduction of iconic stories etched to one’s cultural group or shared social settings. Be it the re-interpretation of old folklores or the storytelling of new encounters; the stories hold intangible meanings and symbols that reflect a community’s shared traits and beliefs, resulting in sacred stories and narratives worth preserving and documenting. Through the Ghost Stories Archive project, The Arts House aims to establish a literary collection of quality and authentic personal ghost stories from Singapore residents. These stories that script Singaporeans’ narratives of spaces, cultural beliefs and heritage can be a valuable resource for the creatives and the public.
In the pilot phase of Ghost Stories Archive, The Arts House collaborates with Hafidz Abdul Rahman to present Cherita Hantu.
