Thesis Title

The Role of Marketing and Publicity in Creating Relevance for the Arts in Singapore

Thesis Abstract

With so many events happening in Singapore, one can easily be overwhelmed by visual images and texts in all the promotional material produced. Amongst these events are the performing arts events. How do the performing arts compete for the attention of Singaporeans and communicate with them? The struggle of the performing arts is especially great in an economically- and outcome-driven country like Singapore where the arts is ranked as low priority for Singaporeans. According to the National Arts Council, the relevance of the arts is not balanced between artists and audiences. Therefore, it is important to broaden the support for the arts and local audience base by communicating the relevance and value of the arts to Singaporeans. This thesis studies the role of arts marketing in creating a relevance of the arts in Singapore to audiences by examining and drawing relations between marketing strategies of two local theatre companies — examining decisions and rationale — and how Singaporeans would respond to them by analysing their responses and inclinations.
