About Community Cultural Development  (Singapore)


CCD (Singapore) aims to further critical discourse and quality arts practices with communities in Singapore and the region. Founded in 2010 by Felicia Low, artist & NUS doctoral scholar researching The Politics of Visual Art Practices with Subaltern Communities in Singapore, it is now a registered charity.

Through CCD Singapore:

1. Practical, aesthetic and ethical issues are articulated and addressed through a discursive platform.

2. Quality arts programmes for specific community needs are developed through long-term partnerships with community organizations.

3. Research documentation, evaluation and writing are carried out with the intention of publishing, for specific arts programmes or projects run by CCD (Singapore) or other organizations.


CCD (Singapore) has collaborated with organizations, such as UNESCO-NIE CARE, Singapore Teachers Academy for the aRts, the Asian Civilizations Musuem, the Singapore General Hospital, Changi Hospital, Arts Fission, Universo Asia, Singapore Polytechnic, the Y-Stars and the Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home, to develop research, discourse and programes that enhance arts practices with communities.
