WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY PROGRAMME IS APPROVED?

All approved programmes will be published in the NAC-AEP Programme Directory for purchase by all MOE schools, Special Education Schools, ITE Regional Campuses and selected pre-schools during the period of 2019-2020.

 

 

*Note for those offering Pre-School Programmes: 

While the Tote Board Arts Grant is currently not applicable to pre-schools, NAC partners selected centres under MOE Pre-School Education Branch (PEB) and 2 Anchor Operators - MY World and PCF - to receive funding for the purchase of Pre-School AEP.  Non-funded centres may refer to the NAC-AEP Directory as a guide to purchasing quality arts programmes for pre-schoolers.

Applicants are encouraged to submit evaluation rubrics for Arts Experience programmes conducted in (i) Secondary Schools (ii) Junior Colleges / Centralised Institutes, and (iii) ITE Campuses. Applicants may refer to the samples of evaluation rubrics provided. 

APPLYING FOR PUBLIC ARTS PROGRAMMES

Outside of school, ad-hoc ticketed public performances and exhibitions presented by professional artists and arts groups in public arts venues are also endorsed under Public Arts Programmes, as part of the NAC-AEP Arts Excursion category. By providing students with opportunities to attend public performances and exhibitions in purpose-built arts venues beyond schools, it is hoped that Public Arts Programmes will imbue students with an appreciation of the art form, and value-add to their learning.  

 

  • Schools can also tap on Tote Board Arts Grant when purchasing approved Public Arts Programmes. 

 

Interested artists, arts groups and presenters may apply for their ticketed public performances or exhibitions to be endorsed under the Public Arts Programme Directory. All applications should be submitted through registered user accounts on the NAC Arts Education portal via CorpPass/ SingPass.
