The Peranakan Association Singapore

TPAS is charged with the mission of preserving and promoting Peranakan culture. The Association and its activities are run by an elected committee of volunteers, and primarily funded by donations. Amongst its outreach efforts are The Peranakan Magazine, published twice a year, and The Peranakan Voices, a choral group that engages through music and ‘live’ performances.

TPAS enjoys close working relationships with sister Singapore associations including Gunong Sayang Association, the Association of Chetti Melaka and the Eurasian Association. We continue to strengthen our bonds with government bodies including the National Heritage Board and Singapore Tourism Board. The Association regularly collaborates with grassroots organisations in service to the general community. TPAS is also a founding member of the Federation of Peranakan Associations, which comprises 11 organisations spanning the Asia-Pacific rim from Thailand through Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Australia.

The Association’s annual calendar includes two key events: The Peranakan Ball and the Baba Nyonya Convention, both of which afford members the chance to meet and learn about aspects of culture and heritage.
