Part of Making Community takes place in the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood which since has become a poster child for the ideal Singapore neighbourhood (scale, scale, scale, location, location, location) The conference itself takes place within a Tiong Bahru institution, the Society for the Physically Disabled at Chay Yan street which in the context of this conference is apt. The conference site is alive site that is continually updated and connected. Impressive and very new media. To register, go to http://makingcommunity.sg and click on Registration.
