NAM HWA OPERA
Yeo Khee Lim Teochew Culture Research Centre is a resource hub located in Nam Hwa Opera.
The Centre is the first Teochew resource-based research centre in Singapore. The aim is to let more people, regardless of nationality, ethnic group or age, have a better understanding of the origins of the Teochew culture and how it has evolved over the years in Singapore.
The Centre has an extensive collection of both local and overseas Teochew culture-related resources, ranging from Teochew culture related books and magazines to Teochew Opera vinyl records that have been converted to digital tracks. The Centre also has a collection of work produced and written by local and overseas Teochew ethnic artists and writers, providing a platform to showcase their work.
The Centre is named after Mr Yeo Khee Lim to carry on his legacy as a collector, as well as commemorate him and his efforts in preserving culture. His sons, Mr Yeo Eng Koon and Mr Yeo Eng Huat have also donated a part of the Xiu Hai Lou collection to the Centre in name of his father, which further enriched the collection in the Centre.
