About Arts House Limited

Singapore’s arts landscape has become more vibrant, due in part to the increased support for the arts from the government and private sector. Cultural institutions such as the Arts House Limited (AHL) have been instrumental in developing the scene. AHL was set up on 11 December 2002 as a public company limited by guarantee under the National Arts Council (NAC) and was officially renamed “Arts House Limited” on 19 March 2014.

As a not-for-profit organisation committed to enriching lives through the arts, AHL is the cultural place manager of Singapore’s Civic District. It manages two key national monuments - The Arts House, a multidisciplinary arts centre with a focus on literary programming, and the Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall, a heritage building that is home to the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. It also runs performing arts space Drama Centre, as well as three creative enclaves for artists, arts groups and creative businesses - the Goodman Arts CentreAliwal Arts Centre and Stamford Arts Centre.

AHL organises the Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) – an annual pinnacle performing arts festival; as well as the Singapore Writers Festival (SWF) – a multi-lingual festival presenting the world’s top literary talents. In addition, AHL manages Our Cultural Medallion Story - the showcase on Singapore’s Cultural Medallion recipients at The Arts House.
