Production Grant


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:
