Open Call for NAC Community Arts Residency (Silver Arts) – February 2021

Keen to develop your artistic practice, to explore and create art with various communities in Singapore?

The National Arts Council is pleased to invite proposals for NAC Community Arts Residency. For this edition, the residencies will contribute to the conversations surrounding creative ageing and connecting seniors with the wider community. They will be held at:

1. Lions Befrienders SAC (Ang Mo Kio)

2. Lions Befrienders SAC (Tampines 494E & 499C)

3. Pacific Activity Centre (Yishun Greenwalk)

The NAC Community Arts Residency aims to support practising artists in advancing the field of community arts in Singapore. Through the Residency, artists will have opportunities to inquire, develop arts-based collaborations, and co-create artworks with communities that will shape communal spaces and reflect the collective stories of people.

In this Residency cycle, we are keen to host and work with artists whose proposals address the following:

a. Encouraging interactions and networks among seniors from diverse social and cultural backgrounds

b. Enriching the wellbeing of seniors through arts and culture

c. Providing opportunities for intergenerational exchanges and interactions

d. Building a sense of belonging to the neighbourhood
