Monuments Series – Open Call for Proposals for Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) 2018

Monuments are shared spaces where people have come together and now reflect a collective consciousness. As vestiges of national memories and meaning, monuments play pivotal roles in contributing to this shared identity.

To date, there are 72 buildings that have been gazetted as National Monuments (refer to roots.sg)— some for their historic, cultural and traditional importance; others for its archeological, architectural, artistic or symbolic significance. These monuments represent significant markers in Singapore’s history, and they include government and civic institutions; military and world war II sites; medical and commercial buildings; schools, residences as well as places of worship.

SIFA 2018 invites artists to be part of an exciting project - creating site-specific works at one of these National Monuments. The works can be performances, readings, installations and exhibitions. These works can, for instance, investigate and uncover the social narratives and personal stories that are embedded in these monuments. They may also seek to engage with communities who are still inhabiting the space or bring forth new perspectives.

Concept proposals in any art form should be submitted via email to sifaprog@artshouse.sg. Submissions have to be received by 14 Aug 2017.

Proposals should cover the following:

  • Monument chosen and rationale
  • Concept and nature of work
  • Key creative members involved and short biography
  • All concept proposals will be reviewed by Gaurav Kripalani, Festival Director Designate, and the SIFA 2018 Producing Team, and responses to submissions will be sent by 28 Aug 2017.

Shortlisted concept proposals will each receive a research budget of $5,000 for development within a period of two months, in close consultation with the SIFA 2018 Team. Deliverables at the end of this stage are detailed in Q4 of the FAQs.

Upon completion of the research phase, proposals will be assessed for suitability for commissioning as a Festival presentation. If found suitable, additional funding will be provided for further development.

SIFA reserves the right not to proceed with further development of shortlisted proposals should they be found unsuitable during the research phase.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions for terms of engagement upon successful shortlisting of concept proposal. For other queries, please email sifaprog@artshouse.sg .

The 2017 edition of SIFA runs until 9 Sep. For details and the full Festival lineup, visit sifa.sg
