Artist-in-Residence Programme
Have you ever seen a community without art? We, in College, feel the arts play a pivotal role in every community, including our own. The Artist-in-Residence Programme provides for distinguished artists to share their expertise and enrich College’s residential life and learning through their creative work, through interaction with members of the College community, and as part of its outreach to other communities. These artists may be invited for varying periods, ranging from a one-hour to a one semester live-in residency. It also provides time and space for the artists to focus on their creative output. Such artists mentor students, conduct workshops and public events for the University community and beyond. They may also participate in the formal and informal curriculum of the College. With artists, students get to explore photography, poetry, writing, musical theatre, singing and more.

Some of the Artists-in-Residence CAPT has hosted include Prof Edwin Thumboo (poetry), Mr Caleb Goh (theatre) and Mr Chris Gilmour (cardboard sculpture).

Reading Groups
College reading groups are part of the informal curriculum. Reading groups bring together students, faculty members, practitioners, and researchers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds to think together about topics specific to each reading group’s theme. They aim to help students deepen their knowledge through in-class discussion, talks by invited speakers, and projects/interventions, guided by relevant readings from literature.

Past Reading Groups include Mitigating Human Trafficking, Regions – Formation or Failure?, Minorities & Languages, Healthy Communities, Exploring Sustainable Development Goals, Social Entrepreneurship, and more. You can find out more here.
