Minister for Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), Grace Fu announced support measures for the arts, culture and sports sectors.

$55 million has been set aside for an Arts & Culture Resilience Package (ACRP) as part of the Resilience Budget. This budget will be used to:
– Protect livelihoods and careers in the arts, culture, and sports eco-systems
– Invest in capabilities that will position ourselves well for the post-COVID recovery.
– Digitalise these sectors to create new markets, provide new job opportunities and ensure that Singaporeans can continue to benefit from the arts, culture and sports.

What does this mean for these sectors and freelancers?

The Lifespan of a Fact

 

Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact-checker for a prominent but sinking New York magazine. John Dโ€™Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boyโ€”an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check Dโ€™Agataโ€™s essay, the two come head to head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.

Featuring Ghafir Akbar (Shakespeare in the Park โ€“ Julius Caesar and Guards at the Taj), Janice Koh (Hand to God) and Jamil Schulze. Directed by Daniel Slater (Shakespeare in the Park โ€“ Romeo & Juliet).

Catch a sign language interpreted performance of The Lifespan of a Fact byย Singapore Repertory Theatreย on 14 March 2020, 8pm.
