Title: Fostering a dynamic arts ecosystem: case studies of independent art spaces in Singapore
Synopsis:

The emergence and development of creative cultural industries has led to arts and cultural investments by cities globally. The strategies deployed in pursuit of a knowledge-based economy often involved building infrastructures and developing professional capabilities in order to nurture a sustainable arts ecosystem that can support a diverse set of players. In the case of Singapore, the state’s commitments to cultivating a culturally vibrant society via arts and culture can be traced back to the 1989 Report of the Advisory Council on Culture and the Arts. While established statutory boards and related governance bodies have prioritized the nation-building agendas and economic motivations underlying the cultural policies, there has been a paradigm shift in policies to emphasize on the importance of tripartite relationships between the public, the private, and the people in order to build a dynamic ecosystem. In view of the evolving cultural policy direction, the research will take on a micro examination on the contemporary visual arts ecology via the studies of independent art spaces. The cultural vibrancy of an arts ecosystem is dependent on contributions of diversified players; therefore, the research attempts to investigate the emergence of independent art spaces in Singapore and assess the linkage between cultural policy and practical implementations.
