Our Mission

SPAF aims to inspire, so all performers leave with a sense of achievement! Its purpose is to open up the window of performing arts to students, encouraging them to develop a range of communication and interpersonal skills through an interactive environment.

About SPAF

The Fifth Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) will be held on 29th July to 4th August, 2016. Since the Ministry of Education and government have embraced the significance of drama as part of the education process in Singapore, there has been an increasing demand for drama activities amongst schools, parents and students. This event is specially tailored to the Primary and Secondary school students in Singapore.

SPAF is an Associate Member of The British and International Federation of Festivals of which Her Majesty the Queen is Patron. By being recognised by the British and International Federation of Festivals, Singapore will join not only the 300+ festivals in the UK but also the festivals in Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

Preparing for and participation in a Festival involves young people in group activity and individual achievement - every skill gained in preparing for and giving a performance is a valuable life skill which will be used in job interviews, in the workplace, in leisure activities and in social and interpersonal relationships throughout life.

Most will not make their career in the Arts but will become that educated audience who will keep the arts alive in the coming years. However the festival movement was where many famous names began their career, Julian Lloyd Webber, Maureen Lipman, Wayne Sleep, Dame Janet Baker, & Paul Scofield to name a few!

The adjudicator will be a certified Adjudicator of The British and International Federation of Festivals, a practicing professional who will not only make a skilled judgement, but who will also seek to inspire greater appreciation of the work being performed and remarks made in public and on the written report will evaluate and encourage the performers.
