Research is an important process through which we can understand the state and issues of Singapore's arts and cultural sector, and create scholarship for thought leadership.
MCCY publishes the annual Singapore Cultural Statistics, which provides an update on the state of the arts and cultural landscape in Singapore. The 2018 Singapore Cultural Statistics is expected to be released in Q1 2019. You may download the reports from previous years here.
