The NOS Artist Residence seeks to provide singers with a platform to work as a full-time artiste after graduation. Through this, we hope to continue encouraging and motivating singers and musicians in Singapore to pursue a performance career, something which was previously deemed impossible here. In line with our NOS Scholarship, recipients will eventually join NOS as an Artist-In-Residence upon completion of their course of study. We hope to brand ourselves as the premier local residency programme with world-class performing standards for our Singaporeans.

The NOS Artiste-in-Residence will be allowed to further train, practice and hone their performing skills through the involvements with NOS’ productions, community outreach and education programmes, culminating in a solo recital at the end of the year. The residency is offered on a one-year contract basis, where a stipend and/or remuneration is paid to the Artiste every month. At the end of every financial year, the Artiste will also be subjected to a performance review to assess the eligibility for a renewal in the contract.

Application to be a NOS Artiste-In-Residence will open at the start of every financial year in April for a month. Fill up the NOS Artiste In Residence Form and submit the supporting documents as detailed in the application.
