Innovating heritage for the future
Inheritage taps on different pillars of Singapore’s rich heritage to come up with novel solutions and programs to help seniors stay active, healthy, and socially engaged, while also celebrating these beloved traditions.
Why heritage and active ageing?
According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), 1 in 4 Singaporeans will be aged 65 and above and 100,000 of them may require assistance with at least one activity of daily living by 2030.

As our health and social care systems come under strain from the ageing population, we need to unlock resources from new places. 

The cultural heritage sector is one such place: It offers motivated communities, beautiful spaces, and activities imbued with meaning that enhance the physical and mental health of seniors.
Using lion dance as a therapeutic tool for active ageing
Cultural heritage can make seniors feel young again, by reconnecting them to their youth. 

For our first pilot, we worked with lion dance as it is well-loved even across different ethnic groups, and provides for a variety of roles and skills to suit elderly of different abilities.
