Arts in the Community Grant

Calling all intrepid artists! We need you to bring productions to Malaysians that have yet to discover performing arts, and this grant will provide you with the funds to do it!

The Arts in the Community Grant will be disbursed to small-scale productions including excerpts of longer plays, puppet shows and sketch comedies that reach out to new audiences with little exposure to the performing arts (e.g. rural communities, low-income families, primary school students).

Audience development may include activities such as:

  • encouraging student engagement in art and cultural activities
  • driving community involvement in the arts
  • cultivating audience appreciation of a particular art form (e.g. dance, theatre, music)
  • developing content and the skill and talent of the artists

The total grant amount is set at RM6,000 per project.
