The Storytelling Centre Limited

Literary Arts
The Storytelling Centre Limited is a non-profit organization based in Singapore. Our core mission is to foster and advance the art of storytelling through performances, collaborations, artistic exchanges, mentorships, training and community outreach.

 We firmly believe that stories are storehouses of Singapore’s unique multidimensional legacy. The oral traditions of folktales, mythology, legends and fables are avenues for preserving, showcasing and developing Singapore’s rich and diverse heritage. Our focus is on ensuring the sustainability of the art form by nurturing emerging Young Storytellers.

SA the collective

Music
SAtheCollective, a non-profit, interdisciplinary and intercultural performing arts company. A highly collaborative organisation, our approach is to seek out like-minded artists to redefine the boundaries of creativity through interdisciplinary and intercultural practices. We hope to imbue the lives of people with a refreshing sense of aesthetic through our community of practice.

While the company is based in Singapore, we work internationally with collaborators and festivals all over the world. We are formed of the following sub-units: SA, an experimental music ensemble defined by a mix of ethnic instruments and electronics; LittleCreatures, a performing arts driven initiative to immerse children 8 years and below in a space where they can explore and play with sounds. We also regularly host our own brand of get-togethers with our communities. Based in our studio ThirdSpace, we host ThirdSpace Studio Sessions, where we invite other artists over for a creative exchange of ideas;  giving audiences the opportunity to interact up close with our artists.

Apart from music making, we are also known for curating our own brand of performance series’, with our most notable project being ETHNI-CITY, an ode to Singapore’s multicultural milieu. SAtheCollective Ltd is a recipient of the National Arts Council’s Seed Grant for the period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2019 and Major Company Grant from 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2022.
