In July 2015, the Peranakan Museum, in partnership with the Agency for Integrated Care, ran two cycles of a six-week pilot programme, Culture, Kopi and Kueh, involving 30 residents and five staff members from Ling Kwang Home for Senior Citizens. At the museum, the participants engaged in facilitated conversations inspired by artefacts, participated in art-making activities, and shared their personal stories with each other.

The pilot programme was well-received by both the residents and staff members from the home, and many said they would like to take part in such an activity again. It also offered many learning points, which will be used to design more programmes that meet the needs of our senior citizens visiting NHB’s museums and heritage institutions.
