Agencies to assess March 2025 lease end for indie arts cluster 195 Pearl’s Hill Terrace: Shanmugam

Whether 195PHT gets an extension, Mr Shanmugam said, “would depend on the assessment by the agencies of their value and the service they provide to the community”.

Mr Raymond Luo, 36, creative director of Clink Clank Clunk who runs the community Instagram page, says Mr Shanmugam’s criteria is good: “More than just a space, the community and the culture is what makes this place completely different from everywhere else in Singapore and very rare in the rest of the world as well. It makes it even more important for the community to band together here and fight for a chance.”

Master tenant Jerry Tan, 63, also expressed optimism about the discussions and cited examples of community work his sub-tenants are involved in including beach cleaning and art therapy sessions for children with special needs.

Mr Shanmugam observed that the arts cluster was a “very interesting place”: “The tenants seem to put a lot of heart and soul into what they are doing – and these are just first impressions, I haven’t dealt with any of them before – but I can say they are passionate, they are committed and they want to do some things. Generally, this is good to see in Singapore. It makes for a better soul for Singapore.”
