Painting, theatre, literature, music, dance — no matter the discipline, every work of art enriches our everyday, adding texture and meaning to our Singaporean-ness.
We are excited to share that the National Arts Council is working diligently to incorporate your feedback into the upcoming Our SG Arts Plan (2023 – 2027). We have received valuable insights and suggestions and are committed to using this feedback to create a plan that will outline the direction and priorities of Singapore’s arts and culture scene over the next five years.
Stay tuned for more information about Our SG Arts Plan (2023 – 2027) and other initiatives. Thank you for your support!
We’ll continue to champion and grow Singapore’s arts sector into a dynamic scene together with you.
This is how we’re bringing TAP to life, with a focus on these three themes:
Singaporeans across different life stages and from all walks of life will be able to enjoy and participate in quality arts programmes. Shared arts experiences promote mutual understanding, build bonds and bridge differences among peoples, fostering an inclusive community. When partners in the public, private and people sectors recognise the value of the arts in society, there is collective desire to advocate for and contribute towards a thriving arts scene.
The arts can breathe new life into familiar spaces and transform Singapore into an iconic cultural city. This will be a distinctive and lively city where artists have diverse, affordable spaces to create and showcase their works, inspiring residents and international visitors with arts experiences, in both the physical and virtual realms.
Implementing new business models, nurturing creative talents and tapping on international networks will help us tap opportunities in the creative economy. This helps create good jobs and exciting career pathways for arts professionals and sustains the arts ecosystem.

Our SG Arts Plan (2018 – 2022) set the stage by supporting the arts community to create, build their skills, and reach new audiences. The arts community’s response to COVID-19 also showcased their resilience as they adopted innovative ways to continue bringing the arts to audiences.
Mid 2021 – Mid 2022
With lessons from the pandemic, we began a year of engagements with collaborators across different sectors to craft a shared vision for the arts. Three key themes surfaced, forming the foundations of TAP.
