To date, after four successful editions, the A4G Fellowship has built an alumni network of 126 Fellows from 23 nationalities.
About the FY22 A4G Fellowship
This fifth edition of the Fellowship will take on an exciting hybrid format. The online component of the Fellowship focuses on capacity building with the exchange of diverse skills amongst Fellows from different cultural backgrounds.

Fellows may also take the chance to participate in some of the exciting events lined up for Singapore Art Week 2023 in January!
