The National Arts Council-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) scheme seeks to provide all students with access to quality arts education programmes through their schools.
Each year, the NAC-AEP makes available 1,600 arts programmes by various artists and arts groups that range across six different art forms - Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Theatre, Literary Arts and Film and Multimedia - and fall into three categories - Arts Exposure, Arts Excursion and Arts Experience.
All approved programmes are endorsed bienially with the help of an expert panel and listed in the NAC-AEP Programme Directory for MOE Primary & Secondary Schools, Junior Colleges & Centralised institutes to purchase at a subsidy through the Tote Board Arts Grant. Schools may purchase these programmes by contacting the artist or arts group directly from the Directory.
The Tote Board Arts Grant is currently not applicable to Pre-Schools.
However, NAC funding is available to selected MY World, MSF and PCF centres for 2018. Please contact your HQ if you’re from a MY World, MFS or PCF centre that is keen on funding to purchase Pre-School AEP for your children. All other pre-schools are welcomed to refer to the database of endorsed Pre-School AEP and contact the arts provider directly if there is interest in the programmes.”
