Extension of the 2019/2020 NAC-AEP cycle

Extension of the 2019/2020 NAC-AEP cycle

Since 1993, the NAC-Arts Education Programme (NAC-AEP) has provided access to quality arts education experiences for mainstream, SPED, ITE and preschool students. 


As the education, and arts and cultural landscape has since evolved, NAC has embarked on a review of the NAC-AEP to respond to emerging needs.


To facilitate the ongoing review process, all current programmes on the 2019/20 cycle will be  extended  for an additional year, and will be part of the 2019-2021 directory. Application for Public Arts Programmes will continue as per the current arrangement. Information on the new NAC-AEP and application details will be shared in the later half of the year.


In 2020, NAC will continue to support artists/arts groups to deliver quality arts experiences to schools through subsidised capability development programmes. For an updated list of courses, please visit:


To mitigate the challenges resulting from the evolving COVID-19 situation, NAC has introduced measures to support the arts community. Details can be found here:
