Arts & Culture

City Nomads’ guides, reviews and recommendations on cultural activities around Singapore – The Arts, Theatre, Shows, Concerts, Performances.

Singapore has well-proven itself over the last decade to be the leading arts hub of Southeast Asia, shaking up the entire art world with top-notch events such as Singapore Biennale and Art Stage Singapore. Our thriving arts scene—a colourful brew of local, regional, and international groups and performers—run the gamut from fine and visual art, music, theatre, to film and a lot more, really.

Gone are the days of art catering solely to elite audiences, as displays and performances are now easily accessible to people from all walks of life. Step out into the streets any day of the week, and you’ll find a city buzzing with cutting-edge arts and culture: head to The Esplanade to watch a concert; The Substation or The Projector for a film screening; The Arts House for an exhibition, or Theatre Works for a play or dance performance.

Pop-up events in unique venues are bountiful, and it’s easy to notice the vibrant street art movement by small independent groups all around Singapore as they pave their own way towards artistic expression. It’s a whole tapestry of creativity, a testament to our unique spirit and multiculturalism.

We help you discover the best of Singapore as the nation soars onto the international arts stage.
