Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) 2014


The annual Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) will take place in April and July. The month-long SYF Arts Presentation in April will feature close to 800 presentations staged by the various performing arts Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs). Students from primary and secondary schools, as well as junior colleges/Millennia Institute, will showcase their artistic expression, teamwork and love for the performing arts.

Members of the public are invited to the Arts Presentations to celebrate the efforts and support the artistic endeavours of our youth. The list of presentations is attached at Annex A. Admission is free.

SYF Celebrations will be held from 4 to 23 July 2014. A three-day event will be held at the Gardens by the Bay from 4 to 6 July 2014, and there will be satellite events at the Ang Mo Kio Public Library, as well as Jurong, Tampines and Woodlands Regional Libraries on 12 July 2014 from 2.00 to 4.00pm. The SYF Art Exhibition will be held at the LaSalle College of the Arts from 9 to 23 July 2014. Parents and the public are welcome to these events.

Since 2013, new platforms, such as the Open Call to schools for submission of activities and performances, have been introduced in SYF Celebrations to showcase more diverse art forms. This year, some of the Open Call activities include inviting students to create a visual interpretation of Gardens by the Bay in a medium of their choice, as well as wearable art costumes. Shortlisted works will be showcased on Instagram and/or at the onsite gallery at Gardens by the Bay. For more information on student submissions for each Open Call categories, please refer to Annex B.

SYF Celebrations complements the Arts Presentation, and emphasises MOE’s philosophy of student-centricity, enabling all talents to grow and develop to their full potential.
