Support our efforts to bring the arts to underserved communities

Community Engagement Programmes

We believe that the arts can help build confidence, heal broken spirits and bring people closer.


Every year, we work with artists and social service agencies (SSAs) to organise some 600 activities that touch the lives of over 14,000 beneficiaries in Singapore. These include vulnerable children and youth, the elderly, persons with diverse needs and disabilities, migrant workers, those marginalised as well as beneficiaries from low-income households.


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.

Due to the COVID-19 preventive lock-down of homes in Singapore, we have observed many of our elderly residents are somewhat depressed, stressed and restless ... it (the programme) brought lots of joy, cheer and peace to all the attending residents. Thank you for the music, delivered to our doorsteps!
