Silver Arts advocates the meaningful possibilities seniors have in the arts.  Organised by the National Arts Council since 2012, Silver Arts is an annual Festival that highlights the significance of arts engagement in enhancing the well-being of seniors and people around them. Through learning a new skill, sharing their stories and co-creating art with artists, seniors can (re)discover their talent, deepen family bonds and form new social connections within the community.   





Celebrate the 10th edition of Silver Arts with us from September to December 2021! Themed “TENacity”, this year’s hybrid edition of the Festival forefronts the messages of hope and continued possibilities, exemplified by seniors and the arts community in these difficult times.


From multicultural performances, interactive exhibitions, and activities in English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and Chinese dialects, seniors and their loved ones can look forward to a diverse and engaging line-up of programmes live at various arts venues, or online from the comforts of their own homes.

The Silver Arts Exhibition will present exciting new works by seniors from four unique community arts projects (CAP) that took place earlier this year. These artist-led projects are designed to bring seniors from various communities together to contribute their own experiences and creativity to the art-making process. Seniors are empowered to share perspectives from their diverse backgrounds, creating a unique experience that bonds them and deepens their understanding and appreciation of the arts.


The Exhibition is a culmination of the creative journey the seniors took, and the artists and seniors invite you to have a glimpse into the stories shared and bonds formed through the displayed works.


View the exhibition online or visit in person at three libraries.

To ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all our audiences, Silver Arts 2021 will be adhering closely to national guidelines and will put in place the following the safe management measures at our Festival. Please note that ticket holders will be denied entry if they are unable to produce required evidence. 


  If you are fully vaccinated  

Fully vaccinated individuals who have completed your vaccination regimes at least 14 days before the date of the event are exempted from Pre-Event Testing (PET). Please have your TraceTogether app or token available to verify your vaccination status at the venue.

  If you are an individual who have recently recovered from COVID-19  

Individuals who have recently recovered from COVID-19 must present a valid PET Exemption Notice at the door; or have completed at least one dose of Pfizer-BioNTech/ Comirnatry or Moderna after being diagnosed to be infected with COVID-19, with an additional two weeks for the vaccine to be fully effective.

  If you are attending the event with a child aged 12 years and below  

Children aged 12 years and below not eligible for vaccines currently under the National Vaccination Programme are exempted from PET. However, there is an overall attendance cap of 20% of attendees for children aged 12 years and younger, and as such we seek your understanding that once the cap has been reached, we will not be able to admit said profile of audiences.

  If you are unvaccinated  

Unvaccinated individuals must  


  1. provide proof of a *valid negative COVID-19 Test Result on a PET taken within 24 hours of the end of the performance you are watching or;
  2. undergo a complimentary PET at the venue provided by the National Arts Council.


*A valid negative COVID-19 test result refers to a negative PCR or ART test administered or supervised by MOH-approved COVID-19 Test Providers. Negative results obtained from self-administered ART test and self-administered ART test performed under supervision by parties other than MOH-approved COVID-19 test providers are not recognised for PET

  Complimentary PET at the venue  

A “Pre-Event Test” (PET) refers to a COVID-19 test taken by an individual who wishes to enter a venue where selected events, businesses, or activities are being held.


If you are aware that you require a PET, we strongly urge ticket holders to:


  1. Arrive 60 minutes before the start of the event.
  2. Proceed to the designated area for the PET.
  3. Wait for test result to be sent via sms in 15-20 minutes after the test has been completed.
  4. Show your COVID-negative result for admission.

  If you are unable to complete the Complimentary PET on time for the event  

Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break (if any). Such break(s) (if any) will be determined at NAC’s sole and absolute discretion.
