Funding an Uncommon Vision 

Once in a rare while, a project comes along which has the potential for influence far beyond its domain or country; one that holds out the promise to be the catalyst for deep change in many disparate fields and communities.

ITI is such a project. The institute’s Acting Programme is a distinctive intercultural actor training programme for contemporary theatre in the world.

It attracts a luminary master faculty who consider their time at ITI a deep source of inspiration to their practice, and talented students from all over the world looking to take their craft to the next level. Post graduation, ITI graduates continue to work in theatre, film and creative industries, making an impact in their respective communities. They also collaborate across geographical borders and have formed a theatre collective, Traditions & Editions Theatre Circus.

ITI has also seeded other groundbreaking initiatives. We are a founding member of Emily Hill, an independent arts collective which went on to develop Six Degrees – a network of independent artists and organisations working in the arts and creative industries.

ITI is a registered charity and an approved Institution of Public Character* under Singapore’s laws governing the charity sector. Over 60% of our income comes from fundraising.
