The arts can enable creative expression that reflects our identity, improve our sense of well-being and strengthen social connectivity. To cater to the needs, preferences and lifestyles of varying demographics including our youths, the National Arts Council
(NAC) works closely with public agencies, industry leaders and artists to provide opportunities for young artists and Singaporeans to build capabilities and experience the arts in their lives.
ArtsXplore is jointly organised by NAC and Somerset Belt, and supported by the National Youth Council and the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. It is a youth-centric arts incubation and mentorship programme that believes in influencing issues
that we care about through art-making. This four-month arts mentorship programme involves youths aged 15 to 35 years of age who want to make a difference through the arts.
The second season of ArtsXplore is produced by Jeffrey Tan from Theatre Today. It runs from December 2021 to March 2022 and explores five key themes:
- Environment and Sustainability
- Support for Vulnerable Groups
- Jobs and Future Work
- Mental Well Being
