Singapore Internationale

The Singapore Internationale supports showcases of Singapore’s culture and innovation through the arts, as well as arts-based initiatives for social good.

They have connected with world communities in over 50 countries around the world!

They are our Citizen Ambassadors.

They are the recipients of our Singapore Internationale grant.

We have enabled more than 270 artists, arts groups, cultural leaders, and multi-sectorial partners to showcase Singapore’s culture and innovation through the arts for close to 20 years. 

From solo presentations, internationally renowned platforms, to working with international collaborators on arts-based projects that promote positive social change, we are proud to have partnered these citizen ambassadors in more than 800 projects to connect communities, and strengthen intercultural understanding and appreciation.

If you have an interesting idea for an arts-based project within Singapore or internationally, be it an individual or collective action, feel free to write to us at or you can apply  for Singapore Internationale now!

When Singaporean artists interact and collaborate with their international counterparts, they share a facet of Singapore culture and, in turn, draw inspiration from others. Their work reflects the result of arts and culture as an interactive platform for the global community and the enduring relationships across cultures.

People and partnerships are central to us. DiverseCity celebrates these enduring relationships. We have, year on year, supported diverse and talented artists and arts groups since 2000, to share insights into Singapore’s values and ways of life through their work to foster greater understanding and engagement between Singapore and the global community.

Some of the works supported under Singapore Internationale are captured in our DiverseCity publications, which is produced on a biennial basis. Check them out!
