SINGAPORE : The Aliwal Arts Centre will be launched in March 2013 as the next arts housing development under the Framework for Arts Spaces.
The framework comes under the National Arts Council’s (NAC) plan to create a stronger link between infrastructure support and the different needs of artists.
The Goodman Arts Centre was rolled out in 2011 as a pilot project under the framework.
Since its opening, the centre has launched more than 200 programmes.
NAC has been working with government agencies and commercial developers to facilitate co—location of artists and arts groups in commercial developments.
One such project involves Very Special Arts taking up a space at Changi City Point Mall in 2011.
Another project involves the Singapore Dance Theatre moving into Bugis+ mall from early 2013.
NAC is discussing with partners like the People’s Association on co—locating artists and arts groups in community spaces.
