Chinese Arts and Culture Research Grant (CACRG) is an initiative introduced by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre in 2018 to fund research projects related to Chinese visual arts, performing arts, culture and impact/and or contribution of these Chinese visual arts and performing arts on Chinese identity and culture in Singapore.
The CACRG aims to encourage local institutes of higher learnings (IHLs), think-tanks and academics, and engage them to document and conduct research on different aspects of Singapore’s Chinese arts and culture that are of interest to SCCC and, at the same time, strengthen SCCC’s arts and culture resources and research capabilities.
The projects awarded to date are:
- Chinese Epigraphy of Singapore: 1912-2019
- Poetic Records of the History, Society and Culture of Singapore Chinese: Classical Chinese Poetry in Singapore
- Culture to Bind the Immigrants: Allaying Discontents and Integrating New Chinese Immigrants in Singapore
