The National Arts Council (NAC)’s Production Grant supports the production, presentation and marketing costs of signature artistic projects across the performing, visual, literary or multi-disciplinary art forms. These projects should have the potential for significant impact on the arts scene.
The grant is open to individuals, organisations and collectives with a strong track record of artistic achievement and production, and be able to demonstrate commitment to the long-term development of the arts in Singapore. Productions which are international co-productions should include both a Singapore and overseas presentation/edition.
The grant supports the following types of projects:
- Performances / programmes / exhibitions, whether of a substantial new work(s) or signature artistic work(s), a re-staging, or as a long-running production
- The publication of high-impact titles which are curated and presented as a series of thematically and/or structurally related works. This may include trans-media projects or publications by signature artists. Standalone publications, including publications related to Singapore’s artforms, will be supported under the Presentation and Participation Grant
- Signature, large scale conferences, competitions, fairs and festivals
