The art of govt funding still a work in progress

3 Aug 2017

Assistant Professor of Arts and Culture Management Hoe Su Fern wrote an article about National Arts Council (NAC) funding policies and occasions when the NAC “has withheld funding for artistic projects that it deems antithetical to nation-building, but continued support for the artists in other ways.” She discussed the reasons for such actions and concluded, “As our arts scene matures and more artists … achieve laudable international success, NAC might also consider loosening its reins in leading the development of our arts, and place more trust in our artists to be socially responsible civic citizens whose art is able to help us make sense of our world, and broaden our experience, resilience and understanding.”
