The inaugural student education programme was launched in 2012 during the 3rd Singapore International Photography Festival, with the aim of raising levels of visual literacy among secondary and tertiary level students. We saw photography as a powerful means of personal expression and empowerment. As a bridge between the arts and sciences, it also had great potential in promoting cross-disciplinary learning. So far, we have reached out to more than 8,000 students across various schools and institutions including:
– Raffles Girls’ School
– Raffles Institution
– Maris Stella High School
– Anglo-Chinese School (International)
– Swiss Cottage Secondary School
– Bendemeer Secondary School
– Tanglin Trust School
– West Spring Secondary School
– Si Ling Secondary School
– Dunearn Secondary School
– Riverside Secondary School
– Opera Estate Primary School
– Jurong Junior College
– Ngee Ann Secondary School
– Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary School
– Gan Eng Seng Secondary School
– Fairfield Methodist School
– Crescent Girls’ School
We are proud to announce that three of our student education programmes have been approved under the NAC-AEP, and can now be found on the NAC-AEP Programme Directory.
The National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) aims to provide all students with access to quality arts education programmes. Every year, the NAC-AEP makes available 800 arts programmes by close to 240 artists and arts groups. Schools can utilise the Tote Board Arts Grant to subsidise purchases of any programmes endorsed under the NAC-AEP. Programmes could be in the form of an assembly show performance, or a hands-on arts workshop.
