Asia New Zealand Foundation Curators’ Tour
CultureLink co-ordinated a special research visit programme by three New Zealand performing arts professionals to Singapore. Participants of Asia New Zealand Foundation’s Performing Arts Tour, their intensive one-week visit saw insightful interactions and discussions with Singaporean artists, producers and professionals, as well as visits and attendances at museums, galleries and performances. They also received briefings from CultureLink’s extensive insights into the Singapore arts scene and potential for international artistic exchange.
No doubt they three returned armed with new knowledge, networks and ideas for future projects!
