Funding support for Art Galleries Association Singapore

Response to parliamentary question on funding support for Art Galleries Association Singapore

Written PQ 5416. Ms Usha Chandradas: To ask the Minister for Culture, Community and Youth whether there are any plans to support the Art Galleries Association Singapore with funding from the Government.


  1. MCCY recognises the role of the commercial visual arts sector in contributing to a vibrant arts ecosystem in Singapore. Within the sector, intermediaries such as the Art Galleries Association Singapore (AGAS) contribute to growing the art market by supporting artists in their practices, promoting art appreciation, and cultivating art collecting.
  2. The National Arts Council (NAC) has provided AGAS with organisational development and programmatic support through various grant schemes.  Examples of support include the Organisation Transformation Grant (OTG) for their website optimisation upgrade and the funding of an AGAS exhibition during Singapore Art Week 2022. NAC also extends marketing support through featuring AGAS events on – NAC’s arts and culture events aggregator resource and website, as well as through NAC’s social media platforms.
