Our Programmes

1. The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF)

2. The #Engage Initiative
The #Engage Initiative aims to build a digitally inclusive society through: Providing digital devices for vulnerable children, developing original arts and culture programmes which engender creativity, inspire the acquisition of new skills and impart wholesome values, and developing an annual online arts festival platform which showcases the creativity and voices of children and youth to the community.

3. Fund for Fun
Arising from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the mental well-being of people in Singapore, the Fund for Fun seeks to create healthy, vibrant, connected, and resilient communities through providing arts and wellness programs and public artworks in spaces that invite interaction, provide positive distraction and uplift the spirit of the community. Managed by TRCL, Fund for Fun also seeks to provide artists with a platform to give back to the community while showcasing their craft and enlivening outdoor spaces artistically and aesthetically.
