The NTU CAC Arts From The Heart (AFTH), formerly known as CAC External Performance is an annual Charity Project organised by the club since 2004. Our vision is to help the less fortunate in the society by involving all our 24 member clubs and integrating each member club’s specialisation to put up an extravagant performance.
We believe that arts do not just serve as a platform for aesthetics and entertainment but also an avenue to contribute back to the society. We hope to reach out to the general public and increase awareness about our beneficiaries and to raise funds for them. Though this, we aim for our member clubs, which form the bulk of the artistic talents in NTU, to be nationally recognised by performing to a public audience.
AFTH will be partnering with Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) for the fourth year running, as we believe with continual support, we can provide stronger support to the cancer battlers. We are also proud to have Singapore Association of Mental Health (SAMH) onboard with us, as our second partner beneficiary, as we hope to raise awareness towards mental health and wellness.
AFTH will be organising a virtual fundraising carnival, ranging from talkshows, to workshops and performances! Full proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to both SCS and SAMH. Below are some of the details of our carnival this year!

In its first year, AFTH was organised in collaboration with the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) to raise funds for NKF Children’s Medical Fund. Through the sale of NKF novelty animal pens and teddy bears at the performance venue, the club raised money to help save the lives of the young patients under the Fund’s care.
Our member clubs supported this event not only with the enthusiasm to showcase their exceptional talents to the public, but also performed with great charitable spirit. Held at Century Square on 1st February 2004, the event successfully raised funds for the beneficiary through a unique cultural experience filled with a variety of arts performances while serving a meaningful cause for charity. Since then, AFTH has supported many other non-profit organisations such as the Down Syndrome Association, Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home and Asian Women’s Welfare Association – Teach Me services, Club Rainbow, Dyslexia Association of Singapore and Singapore Children’s Society.
