IdeasCity Singapore


NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore and the New Museum announce a collaboration for NTU CCA Ideas Fest 2019–20, the Centre’s platform to catalyze the exchange of ideas and encourage thinking outside the box. Reflecting on current challenges in urban and social development, the second iteration of this transdisciplinary platform is guest-curated by IdeasCity, at the invitation of NTU CCA Singapore. IdeasCity is the New Museum’s civic platform that explores the future of cities with art and culture as a driving force.

IdeasCity Singapore will take place from February 15-23, 2020 and will study the notion of being in solidarity with nature. The week-long Residency will feature performances, screenings, seminars, site-visits, and workshops, and invites emerging practitioners to develop projects and research on the environmental, social, and urban networks that shape the way we live together. The culminating Public Program on February 22, 2020 will feature conversations, presentations, and workshops addressing local, global, and planetary concerns defining Singapore and Southeast Asia today, and the future of communities world-wide.


IdeasCity Singapore’s residency program invites 20 to 30 emerging practitioners to develop projects examining the future of Southeast Asia as shaped by climate crisis, economic policy, and urban development.

Candidates will be selected based on motivation, interest, and availability, on a rolling basis until December 9, 2019.


The residency includes honoraria, meals, and accommodation for those traveling to Singapore.
