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:
Digital and blended modes of learning are 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.
