The Singapore International Foundation (SIF)’s Arts for Good Projects bring together artists and different sectors of society to create arts-based initiatives to enhance cross-cultural understanding and create social impact. Through this programme, we harness the power of arts and culture to foster inclusive communities, enable livelihoods and promote sustainable urban living.

At the SIF, we recognise that the COVID-19 situation has impacted the arts and culture scene globally. We are ramping up our Arts for Good Projects to help support arts practitioners and their arts-based initiatives.
