They are dedicated to collaborating with Singaporean artists and fostering partnerships with arts centres and festivals to showcase their talents on the global stage. It is both humbling and heartening to witness Huayi evolve into one of Singapore’s most embraced arts festivals, serving as a coveted platform for Chinese artists worldwide.




Taking place during the festive Chinese New Year, Huayi celebrates with an inspiring and vibrant lineup of arts programs, including both ticketed and non-ticketed events.
