2015 - 2016, Singapore
Dakota Crescent is a housing estate in Singapore with a significant history. On 25 July 2014, the Housing Development Board announced that Dakota Crescent would be slated for redevelopment. By December 2016, the residents have moved out of this place they used to call ‘home’.
A community project that started out with Dakota Adventures in early 2016, continued with a multimedia documentation and titled Between Two Homes, launched in the second half of 2017. The initiatives hope to open the discussion about home, with the educational arm seeking to work with youths to become empathy - focused community builders. The initiative gradually transited and evolved to become Cassia Resettlement Team.
As part of the project, tanah conducted a series of workshops with the residents in November 2017, focused on food literacy and garden to table awareness.
