Education and Development

We develop policies and programmes to bring quality arts education to all children in our schools, establish clear training and career pathways for aspiring and established arts professionals and celebrate the development of arts and culture leaders. 

Engagement and Participation

We create opportunities for everyone living in Singapore to have meaningful encounters with the arts as an integral part of their lives, ensure access and inclusion in and through the arts so that all communities can enjoy the benefits of engaging with the arts and foster partnerships with corporate, government and social agencies to extend the reach of the arts.

Policy and Planning

We develop robust arts and culture policies to nurture Singapore’s arts ecosystem, engage in organisational development and performance management work to strengthen NAC’s internal processes and position Singapore arts globally through international exchanges, collaborations, market development initiatives and showcases.


We lead the growth of the arts and culture research scene in Singapore and commission arts and culture research at the national level to inform policymaking.

Human Resource & Administration

We cultivate the skills and talents of our people, overseeing recruitment, staff training and career development, office management and registry as well as secretarial support.

Sector Development

We plan and implement our sectoral masterplan, key strategies and initiatives that advance Singapore's arts ecosystem and its practitioners. We also fund and support the development of artists, arts companies and arts businesses in the performing, visual and literary arts, across a diverse range of schemes.


We provide financial insights for NAC's organisational strategies and implement policies and procedures for NAC's finance and accounting activities.

Arts & Culture Development Office

We develop and execute strategies to grow cultural philanthropy and play a secretariat role in administering the Cultural Matching Fund.

Marketing, Communications & Digital Strategy

We develop, implement and manage publicity strategies and integrated marketing campaigns to support NAC's programmes and strategic priorities. We formulate and implement digital strategies to optimise work processes and lead digitalisation initiatives for the arts and culture sector.

Precinct Development

We develop arts infrastructure frameworks in partnership with key government agencies to diversify spaces for the arts in Singapore and work with venue owners to integrate the arts into the Civic District and Bras Basah Bugis precincts.

Citizen & Sector Engagement

We oversee and develop broad-based engagement strategies for NAC, engage relevant stakeholders and manage programmes such as the Arts Resource Hub online portal and the physical Arts Resource Hubs to support freelance arts professionals and Self-Employed Persons.

Industry & Business Transformation

We map the sustainability strategy for arts organisations and Self-Employed Persons (SEPs), and work with key government agencies to enable the sector to develop new business models. We drive the culture sector’s transformation by enabling artists and arts companies to use digitalisation as part of sustainability plans, including driving administration efficiency, enhancing service delivery and strengthening income generation with the monetisation of digital content. We also develop a capability development strategy for SEPs, including training pathways, while addressing current short-term employment challenges and work with partners like Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) on support initiatives.
