The Straits Times – “$200m to spur private funding for arts, culture”

26 February 2013

Life! reported the establishment of this fund by Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, and reported Sasi’s comments that the fund will help develop private philanthropy for the arts sector, especially from individuals, and that this would eventually relieve the pressure on government coffers. Sasi was quoted as saying that the fund is “absolutely critical to diversify the ecology of arts and culture in Singapore”, and that this was timely, especially with the growing interest in arts education in Singapore.
