The Artist-In-School Scheme (AISS) supports sustained partnerships between Singapore arts professionals^ and schools, to co-develop customised arts experiences that deepen students’ engagement in and through the arts.
The AISS offers an expanded scope to enable schools to co-design a range of meaningful arts experiences that focus on working with arts professionals^ to achieve any of the following objectives:
*NEW* From 2021, digital and blended modes of learning will be supported through the AISS. Do indicate clearly in your proposal if you plan to use these teaching methods.
To facilitate deep engagement, a minimum of 10-hours of artist-student interaction is recommended.
Schools may include a teacher-training component as part of the programme, on condition that the number of hours designated for teacher-training does not exceed the number of hours of artist-student interaction.
Schools may also include a presentation / showcase component as a culmination of their AISS project. Please note that stand-alone presentations / showcases will not be supported.
^ Arts professionals refer to artists (e.g. musicians, dancers, writers, sculptors etc.) and other professionals (e.g. art critics, light/sound designers etc.) with a practice in the arts industry.
