Familiar Strangers: Storys of migrant workers in Singapore

Kenji Kwok

Familiar Strangers is a campaign to both collect and share the stories of low-wage migrant workers in Singapore.

„We strive to provide numerous platforms for them to tell their own stories, in their own words and other means of expression, such as through photos and videos.

Through that, we hope to give Singaporeans an opportunity to learn more about the lives of low-wage migrant workers here, from reading the unfeigned and heartfelt stories that they have shared with us.“

China: Drinking the Northwest Wind

Like so many of Mao’s pronouncements, it sounded simple. “The South has a lot of water; the North lacks water. So if it can be done, borrowing a little water and bringing it up might do the trick.” And thus, in 1952, the spark was lit for what would blaze to life four decades later as China’s most ambitious engineering project—a scheme to bring some 45 billion cubic meters of water, mostly from the mighty Yangtze and its tributaries, up to the north China plain to Beijing and the parched farmland and factory towns around it. The central route of the project began carrying water from Hubei to Beijing in late 2014, and, like so many of Mao’s plans, it has left a swath of human devastation in its wake.

Vivek Singh: Frontier Dispatches

Frontier dispatches is a series of reportages from the peripheral areas of India and beyond. India’s northeast, connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land called the chicken’s neck shares more than ninety percent of its border with Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh. The region is a fragmented jigsaw of indigenous people in one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse parts of Asia.
