NAC Youth Arts Overseas Attachment Programme: Selected Participants for 2014
This initiative is part of the National Arts Council’s on-going efforts to develop youth arts capacities in Singapore, and is managed in collaboration with Artswork – which is UK’s national youth arts development agency with 25 years of experience. The programme offers the opportunity for participants to embark on an immersive learning experience at a mix of established UK youth arts organisations. Upon return, participants will be expected to contribute to the youth arts landscape by developing or facilitating opportunities for young people to be engaged in and through the arts. Through participation in the attachments hosted by relevant and established youth arts organisations in the UK, there will be opportunities to network with international counterparts and learn from first-hand experience. The aim is to facilitate knowledge transfer for the benefit of Singapore’s arts and youth communities, including those marginalised.
We received an overwhelming number of applications for the NAC Youth Arts Overseas Attachment Programme, and after a series of interviews, 4 outstanding individuals were selected: Lam Gin Chia, Vicky Gunawan, Nur Sahirrah Binte Mohamed Safit, Roland Lim. The 3-month attachments to established UK youth arts organisations will take place within the period of April to August 2014. This experience will help them to initiate and develop programmes for young Singaporeans upon their return.
