Advocating for the Arts
An important part of the National Arts Council (NAC)’s work is to champion the role of the arts in Singaporeans’ lives through arts advocacy. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect us in many ways, the role of arts and culture is more important than ever as it connects the various communities in Singapore and the world with each other, even as we are physically apart.
In April 2020, the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign was launched to bring the best of Singapore’s arts and culture digital offerings on one integrated platform at A-List.Sg to be enjoyed and experienced, anytime and anywhere. By presenting livestream performances and recordings, virtual tours of exhibitions, art workshops, and fun arts activities for families, the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign reaches out to home-grown audiences and those around the world, while profiling and supporting our Singaporean artists and arts organisations.
