As Singapore’s society matures and as audiences become more sophisticated, the arts lover has never been more spoilt for choice. Whether it is a play asking hard questions about self-identity, stirring music and dance moving the soul, or traditional
art forms making us reflect on our roots, there is diversity in our arts landscape.
Audience numbers have been steadily growing from a decade ago, and still, challenges remain. Are we winning new audiences? Have we remembered to document and study our precious cultural legacies? More importantly, where do we go from here?
Drawing from our assessment of the sector and in consultation with the industry, our Master Plan for the Arts casts a collective vision for the scene and sets out our work for the next 5 years. It is a reflection of the performing arts sector’s aspirations for their individual practice, the arts at large and at a higher level, the Singapore society.
