Kampong – Jurong East is a quarterly zine that is a cross between a human map and a community sketchbook. It is a platform for a myriad of co-creators ranging from the elderly, the youth, migrants, professionals to non-professionals to intersect, explore and express the identity of Jurong East.
Each issue features a thematically curated set of personal stories, photo collages and artworks excavated from the crevices of the HDB jungle to celebrate the perks and quirks of the community. With much creative freedom, we strive to present authentic stories that will evoke in the people of Jurong East a deeper consciousness about their community and inspire other readers to reflect on their own relationship with their neighborhoods.
