One would be able to learn more and appreciate the art scene of Singapore at the festival as there were all types of activities and programmes that include exhibitions by fine artists, visual artists and sculptors, performances like stage plays, theater and music as well as many others. Local Singaporean artists were heavily involved with the festival while many from the international scene too were involved in showcasing their works during the festival.
The first festival was launched in 1977 and this was widely regarded as a national event where the local arts and culture are showcased and celebrated. Since then, it has been held each year and the widely anticipated event allows artists the platform to show the world their artistry, techniques and body of art work.
