LASALLE College of the Arts is an art school renowned for its contemporary art practice, delivery of award-winning artists and designers, firm commitment to arts education and nurturing of art research in Singapore. LASALLE produces thinking and reflexive graduates who are not afraid to access the global creative industries hence we have many students working internationally from theatre, film to design. We are uniquely located in Singapore, a world leading global financial, economic and cultural hub. A graduate education here brings you closer to developing a deep understanding of cultural and economic links not only between the East and the West but also with the Singapore’s hinterland of Southeast Asia and East Asia. LASALLE’s campus is at the heart of Singapore’s arts and heritage districts drawing from migrants and colonial histories from India, China, and the Malay Archipelago. Surrounded by prestigious museums, galleries, design centres and performing arts venues adjacent to the financial and business centres of Singapore, an education at LASALLE brings the creative sector immediately into the classroom, through lectures and learning visits, where you develop quick and lifelong networks with international artists, curators, arts managers, designers and cultural workers. At LASALLE, you get a top quality education through the opportunity to work with a community of emerging artists, designers, curators, performers and academics in creating new opportunities and outlooks to your research and practice and more importantly, to develop path-breaking research between theory and practice. You will be supported by LASALLE’s curatorial division, the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, founded on the principle of curating and exhibiting contemporary art and exploring its practices of making, and the boutique research-orientated arts library, The Ngee Ann Kongsi Library, in your journey of research and practice.
