What does Intercultural Theatre Institute do?

The Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) is a Singapore-based independent theatre school for contemporary artists, offering an intercultural actor training program based on traditional theatre systems. ITI provides three years of intensive training to students from Singapore and beyond, preparing them for socially engaged work in the arts both locally and internationally. As a registered charity and Institution of Public Character, ITI relies heavily on fundraising efforts to support its mission. Donations are crucial in helping nurture artists who contribute positively to their communities. Alumni have gone on to produce socially engaged work, with some taking up leadership roles in underserved communities. Notable alumni include Yeo Yann Yann, Peter Sau, Felimon Blanco, and Sankar Venkateswaran, recipients of numerous awards for their performances and contributions to the theatre world. Donations can be made via cheque or other methods as well.
