NAC-Arts Education Programmes (NAC-AEP) affected by COVID-19

[UPDATED 25 March 2020] NAC-Arts Education Programmes (NAC-AEP) affected by COVID-19

1.  To protect students and staff against the spread of the COVID-19, MOE has suspended large group and communal activities such as camps and inter-school activities to minimise mingling and mitigate potential risks when students gather in large numbers. External school activities, such as CCAs that are conducted at external/public venues with little control over exposure to crowds, have also been suspended till June Holidays.

 

Arts instructors / arts groups with rescheduled/cancelled NAC-AEP bookings can refer to MOE’s website here for further information and may contact MOE directly through the email provided on their website.

 

2. In the effort to adhere to the guidelines set out by MOH and MOE to avoid large-scale gatherings, artists/arts groups may wish to explore alternative modes of presentation and engagement when delivering approved programmes to schools, for example, digital presentations. Artists/Arts groups who intend to change their presentation modes may seek approval by submitting a change request through the NAC-AEP portal as per standard procedure. In the submission, please highlight the key changes for example, change in mode of delivery, content, scope of programme, etc.

 

During this period, NAC will also consider alternative modes of presentation for Public Arts Programmes. Please provide details of presentation including changes in costs (if any) in the application through the NAC-AEP portal as per standard procedure. For changes to existing programmes, you can write directly to us.

 

Please refer to the user guide for more information on how to submit a change request or a Public Arts Programme.
