The National Arts Council (NAC) launched Our SG Arts Plan (2023 – 2027), inviting artists, audiences and stakeholders to play their part and join the development of the arts scene in Singapore. Officiated by Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth & Second Minister for Law, the launch of Our SG Arts Plan (2023 – 2027) is a culmination of engagements with more than 16,500 stakeholders on their hope for the arts scene in Singapore.
Guided by insights derived from close consultations with industry partners, various artists and creatives, as well as public feedback since July 2021, Our SG Arts Plan (2023 – 2027) sets out the masterplan for the arts and culture in Singapore for the next five years. The plan is centered on three strategic thrusts that will guide the future of the Singapore arts scene – to build A Connected Society where our community is anchored by the shared arts and culture, A Distinctive City where spaces are invigorated by the arts, making Singapore an endearing home and attractive destination, and A Creative Economy where the arts sector is powered by excellence, innovation and close collaboration with the larger creative industry, through partnerships, data and insights, as well as technology and innovation. Eight initiatives will be rolled out as a start across the arts, lifestyle, community, and technology sectors, among others, exemplifying how everyone has a part to play in the future of Singapore’s arts scene, and its progress over the next five years.
