ABOUT THE ARTS HOUSE
Occupying the almost 200-year-old building that was home to Singapore’s first parliament, The Arts House continues in the distinguished tradition of this gazetted national monument and now plays a key role as the national literary arts centre in the country's arts and creative scene. The Arts House at the Old Parliament, as it is affectionately referred to, promotes and presents multidisciplinary programmes and festivals within its elegant spaces. It focuses in particular on the promotion of literary arts and culture, celebrating the works of written and spoken word artists from Singapore and beyond.
The Arts House is run and managed by Arts House Limited (AHL). AHL also presents the Singapore International Festival of Arts, and manages Victoria Theatre & Victoria Concert Hall, Drama Centre, Goodman Arts Centre, Aliwal Arts Centre and Stamford Arts Centre.
