Community Engagement Programmes

We’ve witnessed how the arts can help build confidence, heal broken spirits and bring people closer.

Every year, with donors and supporters, we work with artists and voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs) to touch the lives of over 10,000 beneficiaries in Singapore. These include seniors, children, youth and those with special needs.

Your support ensures that we can reach out to more. Our community arts activities can be facilitated for individual donors or as part of Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives for companies.

I saw the smiles and excitement of our residents as they watched and listened to Braddell Heights Chinese Orchestra. It was indeed a great experience and a beautiful memory to treasure. Ma Cecilia, Rehab Physiotherapist, Ling Kwang Home for Senior Citizens

How your donation helps us

Every $10 pays for transportation for two beneficiaries to enjoy a performance at Esplanade.

Every $200 pays for two beneficiaries to attend an arts workshop, as well as transportation and tickets to enjoy a performance at Esplanade.

Every $20,000 or more sponsors a Flagship Project. Beneficiaries are invited to participate in a sustained arts programme over 8 – 12 weeks involving workshops and visits to Esplanade, facilitated by artists and social workers.

I think there’s a sense of self-development, there’s confidence built and definitely there is great bonding amongst the few [who participated in the project] which I believe will spread. Lucy Tan, Cluster Director, PEACE-Connect Seniors Activities Centre in response to Sing Out Loud! project

Adopt a Tree, Mark a Bench

Esplanade is a not-for-profit arts centre and your donation helps us to maintain our Forecourt Garden, our greenest space, which is also a great nature-filled environment for outdoor arts performances. Our garden has five different types of indigenous trees and 26 species of shrubs and plants, three water features and 32 benches.

Adopting a tree (from $8,000) or bench (from $3,000) is the perfect opportunity for you, as an individual or a group, to honour a loved one or commemorate a special occasion. Have your message engraved on a personalised plaque that we’ll attach onto the tree or bench of your choice.

Your support will help us to grow a healthy ecosystem in our garden and create a lush, green oasis in the heart of the arts and cultural civic district.

To adopt, please email us at donations@esplanade.com.

Adopt a School

The arts contributes to a young person’s educational journey, developing empathy, nurturing creativity and a relationship with the arts, and offering new perspectives and world views. We recognise the value of education through the arts and the transformative power of those experiences, and with this programme, you can be a part of it too.

By adopting a school, you help us reach more young people, giving them a longer-term experience with the arts.

How your donation helps us

Starting from $3,500, you can give as many as 80 students the opportunity to enjoy 1 to 2 ticketed performances at Esplanade.

To make a difference to our future generation, please email us at donations@esplanade.com.
