ArtReach is an initiative of the National Arts Council to bring the arts to the social sector for wellness, intervention and rehabilitation.


It supports artists and voluntary welfare organisations to collaborate on projects that harness the arts to achieve social outcomes, such as building resilience in at-risk youths, increasing engagement among isolated elders in the community and developing self-expression in children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

ArtReach also forges partnerships, initiates conversations through learning and networking platforms and develops resources to help social service practitioners, healthcare workers and volunteers kick-start and lead their own arts programmes.



The WeCare Arts Fund is a collaboration between the National Arts Council and the People’s Association. Administered by the five Community Development Councils in Singapore, the fund aims to increase arts access for beneficiaries within the social service sector.


Voluntary Welfare Organisations can tap into this fund to work with artists to develop interactive arts workshops, which are customised to the needs and interests of their beneficiaries, in the Performing, Visual, Literary or Multi-Disciplinary art-forms.
