About Our Cultural Medallion Story

 


The Cultural Medallion was instituted in 1979 to recognise individuals whose artistic excellence, contribution and commitment to the arts have enriched and distinguished Singapore’s arts and cultural landscape.   

Our Cultural Medallion Story at The Arts House celebrates the achievements of 135 award recipients through both physical and online presentations. Discover how the Cultural Medallion story started, what inspires our Cultural Medallion recipients, and dive into their creative journeys through publications written by and about them.

The showcase is open Tues – Sun from 10.30am to 6.30pm. Admission is free for all. 

Our Cultural Medallion Story is commissioned by the National Arts Council and managed by Arts House Limited.
