Theatre Work Placement

The Theatre Work Placement (TWP) is introduced to nurture outstanding and committed individuals with at least 5 years of relevant experience in Singapore’s arts sector who played the role of a festival or exhibition programmer, creative producer, or technical manager in Singapore. The TWP, designed and managed by the British Council, aims to identify up to four individuals to participate in this programme.


The TWP will provide participants with training that addresses the needs of Singapore’s performing arts sector in the above-mentioned roles; exposure to international best practices; and access to international networks. Each participant will be expected to commit to a one-month programme comprising these two components:


  • participation in a work placement at a host organisation in the United Kingdom (UK); and
  • delivery of a public sharing session in Singapore after the work placement.


TWP participants are expected to contribute to the growth and vibrancy of the performing arts sector in Singapore after they return from the TWP programme. For example, participants may work on independent projects that utilise the skills, knowledge and competencies acquired through the programme.
