Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts or more famously NAFA is one of the most prestigious schools for Arts in Singapore. Established in 1938, the well-reputed academy is spread across four campuses which are within walking distance from each other. Aside from its quality education and diverse curriculum, the Academy is well known for its various galleries and numerous events they hold in a year. NAFA is extraordinarily active and engrossed in the art industry and provides an art space for many young minds. These galleries and exhibits are often open for public visitation and are highly recommended for those with interest in the Arts.
The NAFA art festival is one such vibrant, social event that is held by the Academy on an annual basis. Its debut in 2003 as a cultural festival was an enormous success. The festival includes various performances, competitions, workshops and installations that are the product of strenuous hard work. The festival is a great way to explore and understand various forms of art and broaden your understanding of the tricky subject. NAFA also holds an annual charity event called 'Arts from the Heart' that involves all 23 member clubs of the Academy. The event is extremely interactive and not only do all attendees have a ball of time but the money raised is also donated to charities such as the National Kidney Foundation, Down Syndrome Association and the Asian Women's Welfare Association. Aside from this the talented students also get tons of exposure as they perform and showcase their art in a public setting.
