About Campaign

Support the work of ArtsEquator in putting out incisive and intelligent writing on the arts in Southeast Asia. Project Ctrl+S ArtsEquator (Project Save ArtsEquator) is a campaign to raise funds to keep ArtsEquator independent and afloat.

The arts ecosystem is incomplete without a robust, independent arts media that publishes review and opinion pieces about arts practice in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

With the decline in arts coverage in the mainstream media, ArtsEquator is an essential part of the arts ecosystem in Singapore and regionally.

However, the reality is that we have been hit by the double blow of COVID-19 and the loss of state funding to cover our operations. Without public support, we will cease operations in a few months' time.

Your contribution, no matter how small, will allow us to pay staff salaries and commission original content from our pool of freelance writers. With your support, we can continue to publish high-quality, independent arts writing that has disappeared from other media outlets in the region.

About the Charity

ArtsEquator is an arts organisation that values and promotes Southeast Asian regional art practice. Through the ArtsEquator Fellowship and other programmes, ArtsEquator is committed to developing arts writing and criticism which identify Southeast Asian creative practices as part of, rather than adjunct to, global contemporary arts.

ArtsEquator was founded by Kathy Rowland and Jenny Daniels in 2016. Artsequator.com started as a Southeast Asian arts and culture platform, dedicated to supporting and promoting arts criticism with a regional perspective in Southeast Asia. Producing weekly articles supported by industry and community programmes, ArtsEquator's efforts contributed to the development of critical thinking in the arts. With the ArtsEquator Fellowship launched in 2023, ArtsEquator has evolved into focusing on grant-giving platforms and programmes to continue our mission to cultivate and grow arts criticism in Southeast Asia.

Working with over 150 content creators since 2016, we have published over 1,700 reviews, essays and interviews about theatre, dance, film, books and visual arts by Southeast Asian art makers. We also were the first to produce arts-focused podcasts in Singapore, and to date, have published over 80 podcasts. Artsequator.com now also serves as an active archive for researchers, writers and students.

Support the work of ArtsEquator with a one-time or monthly donation. ArtsEquator Ltd. is a Charity, registered in Singapore (UEN No: 201701329M).
