Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre continues to look for opportunities to partner institutions to promote and accumulate cultural knowledge, bring in new perspectives to enrich Chinese Singaporean culture, as well as cultivate the next generation of advocates. Our partners include Singapore Press Holdings, Genealogy Society Singapore, and Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Arts Support Framework
In March 2019, Arts Support Framework was introduced to support local arts and cultural ecosystem. Comprising the Arts Housing Programme, Visual Arts Partnership and [email protected], the Framework offers opportunities for arts and cultural groups to develop and present their works at the Centre.
The Visual Arts Partnership addresses the challenge faced by visual arts groups in finding suitable exhibition spaces. The initiative is open to local arts groups to present their major exhibitions at the centre on a regular basis. Kicking off the first of such partnerships, the Centre signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with eight local groups, comprising the Federation of Art Societies (Singapore), Artists Society of Singapore, Modern Art Society Singapore, Sculpture Society (Singapore), Siaw-Tao Chinese Seal-Carving, Calligraphy & Painting Society, The Singapore Art Society, The Society of Chinese Artists and The Singapore Watercolour Society.
Local artists and groups are also invited to make use of the public spaces in the Centre to showcase their art pieces through the [email protected] initiative. These exhibition spaces are located at key areas within the centre, and provide a platform for the public to enjoy the works by our talented local artists.
