In March 2019, Arts Support Framework was introduced to nurture the local arts and cultural ecosystem by addressing the need for affordable administrative spaces and suitable exhibition locations. The creative community at the Centre is born of the Arts Housing Scheme, Visual Art Partnerships and [email protected]. Collectively, these initiatives enable arts and cultural groups to create and present their craft at the Centre.
Under the Visual Art Partnerships initiative, local art societies organise their annual exhibitions at the Centre’s multi-purpose venues.
The Arts Housing Scheme provide arts groups, associations, and societies with administrative space within the SCCC building. The Centre’s proximity to the Central Business District also presents an accessible location for like-minded individuals to connect and collaborate in cross-disciplinary projects. The current tenants are Drum Feng, Nam Hwa Opera, and The TENG Company.
Aside from the main halls, there are numerous, small pockets of public exhibition space situated within the SCCC building. Through [email protected], artists and groups are able to showcase their works at these platforms. The Centre also partners with local artists and have them provide their interpretation of Chinese Singaporean culture via digital art. The resultant visuals are shared on SCCC’s online platforms and monthly e-newsletter.

Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre explores opportunities to partner with the community to promote and expand cultural knowledge, share fresh perspectives to enrich Chinese Singaporean culture, as well as cultivate the next generation of advocates. A total of eight societies have signed Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with the Centre. These groups are the Federation of Art Societies (Singapore), Artists Society of Singapore, The Society of Chinese Artists, The Singapore Art Society, The Singapore Watercolour Society, Modern Art Society Singapore, Sculpture Society (Singapore), and Siaw-Tao Chinese Seal-Carving, Calligraphy & Painting Society.
