Title: Making the case for the Latin American arts and cultural centre
Synopsis:

In the past fifteen years there has been an expansion of Latin American cultural activity in Singapore. This thesis explores the possibility and potential implications of creating a Latin American Cultural Centre as a mean to connect the arts and culture from the Latin American countries with the communities in Singapore. The thesis (1) Identifies and analyses the role of Cultural Diplomacy in reference to Latin American cultural and arts centres (2) gathers information about the cultural agendas of six out of the ten Latin American embassies in Singapore in order to make the Latin American Cultural Centre useful in helping to manage their agendas, (3) identifies the ecosystem of the Latin American cultural activities in Singapore, both cultural and commercial, in order to better understand the market demand in Singapore, and analyses the information collected from the above in order to propose a model of a Latin American Cultural Centre in Singapore. Such analysis is performed by combining data from published sources and literature, as well as by conducting qualitative interviews with relevant stakeholders. Concretely, a survey was conducted involving the ten Latin American embassies in Singapore in order to determine their cultural agendas and budgets, as well as their expectation of a Latin American cultural centre, and interviews were performed to different festival organizers, businesses owners and possible sponsors who may be interested in collaborating with the centre. Thus, adding these factors, the centre is feasible with the aim of unifying Latin American cultural activities in Singapore with depth and understanding of the culture as an integral concept with a geographical and historical background that interacts in a two-sided cultural relation with Singaporean society.
