Geylang adventures began as a way to showcase the less commonly known and seen side of Geylang, as more than just a food enclave in the business of whoring.
We hope to overthrow the idea that Singapore is a boring and sanitized state. Instead, we believe that an adventure awaits in every neighbourhood for those who willing to seek it out.
Since our conception, we have directed our focus on the different societal dimensions of Geylang, adopting a spontaneous approach of showing love to the people in this area with real actions. We hope to inspire and advocate the belief of loving thy neighbour, sharing and looking out for others to create a bottom-up change.
We believe Geylang Adventures to be a platform for bottom-up initiative in changing social norms and perception. This is done through a series of pop-up social initiatives involving ordinary Singaporeans who choose to do a little extra. As with all initiatives, we believe the intended outcome is not to change the lives of the disadvantaged in big ways, but to alter public perception towards the challenges of being nice, and to serve as a reminder of how similar we are beneath the layers of our external identity.
