Singapore has come a long way in 53 years. Even as our economy developed and physical landscape transformed, our cultural policies kept pace, shaped by the aspirations of our people. While we should be proud of what our arts sector has achieved, our work is far from complete. We will continue the next phase of this journey together with our arts community and all Singaporeans. To serve as a guide, Our SG Arts Plan (2018–2022) maps the National Arts Council’s (NAC) priorities over the next five years to bring Singapore’s arts development to new heights.

The arts must energise and excite Singaporeans, bring people together and reflect what Singapore represents to a global community.
