Occurring from January to February 2024, 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 2024 will consist of 4 main segments of programmes:
– Publicity Drive titled rhapsARTdy
– Exhibitions and Contests titled Populares
– Workshops titled Meraki
– Internal Showcase titled Raison d’etre
The theme for NTU Arts Festival 2024 is Libertas. This edition of the festival pays homage to creative freedom, resistance against the mundane life and the introduction of different art forms. NAF 2024’s purpose is to lower the barriers to the arts and allow NTU students to have better accessibility to explore different types of art forms.
Similar to previous years, Libertas intends to strengthen the bridges between NTU’s diverse communities. Building on the work of the previous festivals, we aim to be a platform for different art forms, and draw different NTU communities in, to come together and commemorate their own strengths and each other. We hope to nurture a collaborative spirit in celebrating the arts in unity. By doing so, we look to enrich the lives of all collaborators and benefactors, even likening this to — as our theme suggests — freedom through self-expression.
