About Us

Initiated in 2004 and adopted by The Business Times in 2005, The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) originated from a conviction that no child with the strong interest and potential in the arts should be denied the opportunity to develop his or her talents due to a lack of financial resources.

Since 2005, BT BAF has reached out to more than 18,000 financially-disadvantaged children and youth, between the ages of six to 19 years old, through a variety of programmes including camps, workshops, signature events and structured arts training programmes in Music, Dance, Theatre, Visual Arts and Tech+Arts. Beneficiaries receive lessons at arts training centres, The Little Arts Academy and 10 Square which are supported by the Fund and managed by The RICE Company Limited, a registered charity with IPC status.
