ABOUT NOISE SINGAPORE
Noise Singapore is dedicated to making noise about the creative talent of young people aged 35 and below. Through numerous platforms to express, develop and showcase their creativity, Noise Singapore hopes to encourage young people in Singapore to actively participate and nurture their relationship with the arts, as well as get them spotted for their budding abilities.
Broadly classified under the genres of art and design, music and photography, the Noise community will learn from top professionals, interact with like-minded youths and share their original creations with the world. Noise Singapore platforms include concerts at venues like the Esplanade that feature young musicians hungry for performing experience and exposure, exhibitions of varied scale that showcase the original artistic creations of young people, an online gallery, mentoring programmes that link aspiring artists with top professionals in the industry, as well as workshops, talks and activities that focus on providing a fun experience of participating in the arts. Noise Singapore is an initiative of the National Arts Council.
