Noise: The Apprenticeship Programme

This August, the NOISE Singapore exhibition returns to SAM at 8Q with a group show of works by young artists responding to the theme of ‘In Transit’.

Inaugurated in 2006 by the National Arts Council, the NOISE Singapore Apprenticeship Programme aims to develop aspiring young artists by pairing them with a mentor. This year, 51 shortlisted apprentices have undergone four months of guidance with industry professionals from creative fields spanning art, design, photography and the moving image. Their works – the outcome of this mentorship programme – will be presented in an exhibition curated by a group of young curators called Mug Collective.

Through numerous platforms to express, develop and showcase their creativity, NOISE Singapore seeks to encourage young people in Singapore to actively participate in and nurture their relationship with the arts.
