The Singapore International Foundation-British Council Artist-in-Residence Exchange programme (SIF-BC AiRx) is a collaboration between the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) and the British Council (BC) to bridge communities between the two countries through the exchange of ideas and perspectives and collaborations in the arts and thought leadership.

It is a residential and cultural immersion programme by SIF and BC that provides Singaporean and British artists with the opportunity to gain new insights, understanding and inspiration through interacting and exchanging perspectives with foreign communities, while assuming the role of ambassadors to promote awareness and to bridge communities. The programme culminates with SIF-BC AiRx participants collaborating on work(s) that reflect insights gained and their experiences on the residency programme.

 

SIF BC MOU Signing

SIF-BC AiRx is organised pursuant to the SIF-BC Memorandum of Understanding in 2011 to bridge Singaporean and UK communities through the exchange of ideas and perspectives, and collaborations in the arts and thought leadership. For each exchange, two artists engage in a dialogue and create new collaborative works that reflect their experiences in their respective host country.
