The Artground – A Curious Place To Be is managed and nurtured by The Ground Co Limited, a registered arts charity. We aim to provide positive arts experiences across a variety of art forms for children from birth to 9 years old in an accessible space that welcomes children from every community.
Our vision to let art do, what art does defines what we do.
We hope that The Artground will be a space where families can feel at ease to come to, to spend some time, to discover, to learn and to be curious.
As of 1 November 2021, The Artground has obtained our Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status. This allows donations of $50 and above made to our charity to be eligible for 250% tax deductions. Donations are matched dollar for dollar by the MCCY Cultural Matching Fund.
We would greatly appreciate your kind support. To find out how, please click here.
Visual Arts Space
Throughout the year, we present interactive visual art spaces that not only allow children to engage in non-directive exploration and practise their motor skills but also to heighten their awareness of aesthetic elements and sense of appreciation.
*Covid-related updates: There will now be designated time slots for families to come into the Artground. Families will be required to pre-book a slot to come to The Artground. Please see our new Admission page for more details.
The Artground also provides tiered levels of access and engagement through our art related programmes, so that families with young children can choose from across a spectrum of drop-in programmes to ticketed programmes. These include performing arts workshops and performances, storytelling sessions, gardening-inspired workshops and art & craft activities and are offered on the weekends. We also present and play host to a variety of ticketed programmes where tickets are pre-booked and prices vary.
*Covid-related updates: Families can no longer drop into our Weekend Arts Programmes without a pre-purchased ticket. You will need to pre-book your Programme tickets and can find more information about our Programmes and how to purchase tickets soon. Please see our new Admission page for more details.
The Hundred Languages of Children
The Artground encourages everyone who visits our centre to be creative by offering opportunities for the child and the artist to remain inquisitive for life. We draw inspiration from the poem, The Hundred Languages of Children. Hence, our primary arts programmes and ancillary workshops go beyond the arts realm, facilitate learning through active exploration and empower children to express themselves in a hundred different ways.
The Artground endeavours to provide and support development opportunities for local artists to co-create meaningful arts experiences, and strives to build bridges between artists, educators, parents and young audiences. Through our core programmes and events, incubation platforms like the GroundBreakers, artist sharing practices and dialogues, and professional development opportunities both locally and internationally, we hope to become a space for artists to inspire and be inspired, to explore, create, question and delight in meaningful aesthetic expressions.
