Arts for Good Fellowship

The Arts for Good Fellowship is organised annually to grow the Arts for Good ecosystem, by fostering a community of practice that harnesses the power of arts and culture to create positive social change.

A public panel, organised in association with the Fellowship, examined how multi-sectoral collaborations through the arts can create positive social changes in the communities they have touched; Partho Bhowmick (left) guiding a participant in his blind photography workshop.

The fellowship brings together cross-sector professionals such as artists, art administrators and programmers from the social sector on a three-step programme comprising webinars and two exchange programmes. Upon completion, fellows join a global alumni where they continue to connect, support and collaborate with one another.

Objectives

Through the Arts for Good Fellowship, participants will

  • Build capacity and learn key skills and knowledge to run an effective Arts for Good initiative
  • Connect with professionals from a international ecosystem that are keen in harnessing the arts for social change
     

Programme

The fellowship comprises webinars and exchange programmes.

Online webinars and Facebook group
The webinars and Facebook group aim to provide participants with an online platform to connect, interact, and keep updated on relevant information throughout the duration of the fellowship.

Two overseas exchange programmes
The exchange programmes aim to provide an opportunity for fellows to convene and gain insights into the interdisciplinary nature and demands of an impactful Arts for Good project in a specific city. Through peer learning, site visits, experiential workshops and networking sessions, fellows will be able to connect with different stakeholders, expand their capacities and gain new perspectives.

Each exchange programme will take place across a four-day period in two global cities, including Singapore where the fellowship is based.
