Lifelong Arts Engagement: Music programming at Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay, Singapore

When Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay opened in 2002, we were very clear that as Singapore’s national performing arts centre, we would be more than just an arts venue. We wanted to help make the arts an important part of people’s lives. To do that, our programmes needed to connect with the country’s diverse audiences, we needed to make the arts accessible for everyone to enjoy, and we also had to nurture audiences of all ages and backgrounds to engage with the diversity of arts and culture. Our mission is to entertain, engage, educate and inspire. An article by Chua Lik Ling.
