We seek to build an online archive that is widely inclusive of the breadth and depth of the Riau islands.
We can’t do this without you! We welcome both historical and creative submissions which are rooted in the stories, people, history, folklore, rituals, cultural practices and environments and social issues of this region.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.
Once your materials have been digitized, we encourage you to donate them to an archive specializing in our region’s history and materials so the actual historical documents and other items remain available. You may have somewhere in mind. If not, we suggest you contact the following about your collection:
National Library Board Singapore
Alternatively, we intend to periodically curate selected items from public contributions for our archive at the artist studio on Nikoi Island. We will be in touch with you directly to seek your consent in using your material.
