Occurring from January to February 2022, NTU Arts Festival (NAF) 2022 is a Special Project under NTU Cultural Activities Club (CAC) which aims to develop NTU’s potential as a cultural hub and establish itself as a premiere event that will be placed on the cultural and arts calendar of Singapore. Involving the 23 CAC Member Clubs and established arts and cultural groups within NTU, NAF 2022 aims to promote the understanding and appreciation of the arts within the NTU community and bring our NTU Arts scene to greater acknowledgement in the wider local arts scene.
This year, NAF 2022 will consist of 4 main segments of programmes:
– Publicity Drive titled Ripple
– Exhibitions and Contests titled Crest
– Workshops titled Oasis
– Internal Showcase titled Surge
The theme for NTU Arts Festival 2022 is Ebb & Flow. Ebb & Flow aims to celebrate the myriad of different art forms in NTU, much like the multiplicity of existent water forms. As NTU Arts Festival 2021’s theme Midsummer Medley aimed to strengthen bonds within NTU and promote unity within CAC, Ebb & Flow will follow suit, further building up connections within the different art forms and celebrating both its uniqueness and similarities as one.
While previous years highlighted internal cohesion and pushing limits, Ebb & Flow plans to not only represent the art community in NTU, but also its audience; providing and introducing to them a platform to appreciate the different forms of arts all at once. Ebb & Flow embodies all benefactors of NTU Arts Festival – the student body, the performers, the audience – and brings them all together by recognising their distinctive qualities and their similitude.
