Why is Our SG Arts Plan (2023 - 2027) important?

The arts belong to everyone. As audiences, participants, practitioners, patrons, or partners, we all contribute to the vibrancy and energy of the arts scene. In return, the arts touch and inspire us, root us in our identities, and help make our city iconic and distinctive.


For our artists, Our SG Arts Plan charts our path towards a vibrant arts industry that provides good careers and helps develop Singapore into a distinctive city and cultural hub. Going forward, artists can tap into the vast potential of the greater creative economy and look forward to more cross-industry partnerships as we build a sustainable arts ecosystem.
