The Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) will host an outdoor light installation, titled Rainbow Connections II, from Apr 29 to May 29. It will be open to the public for free from Tuesdays to Sundays, from 10am to 9pm.  

The outdoor light show consists of 500 suspended solar light modules made from recycled cookie containers and solar lights.

This is a collaboration between local artist Lee Yun Qin and underserved communities such as the beneficiaries from Brighton Connection, a social service agency.

National Heritage Board (NHB) is working together with MHC for Rainbow Connections II as part of its ongoing efforts to strengthen the community and provide a public space for local artists to display their works. 

Deputy Chief Executive (Policy and Community) of NHB, Mr Alvin Tan said: “We decided to collaborate and create an installation that would reflect our collective hope for a better future for Singaporeans and Singapore as we further ease COVID-19 community measures.” 

The light installation surrounds the MHC fountain and is scheduled to be shifted to MacPherson estate and Somerset Youth Park later in the year.
