Patron of the Arts Awards 2022: Recognising our Generous Supporters

The Patron of the Arts Awards acknowledge the tremendous support from individuals and organisations towards the vibrant arts scene in Singapore. In 2021, over $32 million was donated to boost the arts and culture sector in Singapore.

The 39th edition of POAA held on 25 August 2022 acknowledged 244 individuals and 79 organisations for their contribution. As a beneficiary of arts patronage in Singapore, we extend appreciation to donors who have unstintingly supported our cause, even as the impact of the pandemic was deeply felt.

Thanks to the contributions from our patrons, the arts sector was able to continue its important mission of inspiring Singaporeans, deepening our sense of belonging and national identity, and strengthening our commitment to building a better future together. Our experience over the past two years has shown us that when we have a common cause and work together in partnership, we can bring the arts in Singapore to greater heights.

- Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth

Our extensive work through concert experiences, community programmes and digital projects would not have been possible without our supporters.

Our heartfelt congratulations to our donors who were among the individuals and organisations acknowledged by the National Arts Council at this year’s POAA.
