As part of the National Arts Council’s (NAC) initiatives under the #SGCultureAnywhere campaign, Singapore’s streets are set to come to life with the launch of Streets of Hope.

Through Streets of Hope, NAC bands together with 153 homegrown artists to take #SGCultureAnywhere, as their unique works line Singapore’s streets along St Andrew’s Road, Fullerton Road, Esplanade Drive, Stamford Road, and many more. The full Streets of Hope collection will also be made available online on the NAC Facebook page for Singaporeans to easily access and enjoy the art works from wherever they are. This is the first and one of the largest presentations by our Singaporean artists, raised high on street banners to lift spirits, and for all to appreciate the creativity of our nation.

This integrated project commissioned by NAC brings together the visual arts community in full force, joining hands with artists across generations, backgrounds and mediums. Look out for works by the likes of Milenko Prvacki, Heman Chong, Ezzam Rahman, and Zul Othman (ZERO) as we present creations ranging from Chinese calligraphy to digital print, performance art and even batik painting.
