About Campaignends 31 Aug 2021, 11:59 PM
Our building on Prinsep Street has done a lot for us since our beginnings in 2014. However, its shipping-container structure has reached the end of its lifespan and will be demolished by March 2021. This leaves us with two options to refit the existing structure or rebuild from ground-up.
As a team, we decided to crowdfund part of the cost for a permanent building that will allow us to stay. This future expanded space will house more showcases, more experimental ideas and provide more opportunities for mid-career and ground-breaking artists.
We see this signalling to a new milestone, beckoning DECK to grow. With a new and permanent space, we can continue to provide an alternative platform with the community at its heart. The permanence of DECK in the future also marks the maturity of our arts community where smaller organisations can co-exist amongst bigger institutions.
As DECK moves into its next phase, we hope you share our belief that an alternative is always possible and the arts can be appreciated through a plurality of approaches.
We believe you can help DECK claim a permanent space for the arts community by contributing to our new building fund.

DECK was established in 2014 with the mission of supporting and nurturing the community of photographers and artists in Singapore and Southeast Asia. This modular site acts as a connector between community and photography, and offers a platform for people to celebrate photography in the heart of Singapore. Driven by the belief that photography is for all, it welcomes professionals and amateurs to come together, mingle and be inspired. (www.deck.sg)
Singapore International Photography Festival (SIPF) is a biennial gathering of minds from around the world with the common pursuit to advance the art and appreciation of photography. It aims to be a much-needed arena for critical thought and academic discourse on photography in Southeast Asia. SIPF will also function as a key platform to discover, nurture, and propel Southeast Asian photographers onto the international stage. Through its satellite programmes, the festival hopes to engage the public and cultivate a larger audience. At the core of SIPF is a firm belief that photography can be enjoyed by all. The upcoming 7th edition of SIPF will take place from 5 November 2020 to 31 January 2021. (www.sipf.sg)
