The History Workroom LLP is a research and writing consultancy specialising in historical research and content creation for exhibitions, publications, workshops, and heritage trails, among others. Our expertise and focus are on Singapore and Asian history and culture.
Founded by two avid history-lovers, we believe history should be accessible, interesting and accurate. For us, history goes beyond the “who’s who”, the “when” and the “what”. As much as history is about meticulous research, it is also about stories; it is about piecing together fragments of dates, people, places and objects into comprehensible and meaningful stories for present and future generations.
