Founded in 1990 by the late Kuo Pao Kun, The Substation is Singapore's first independent contemporary arts centre.

Over the years, The Substation has worked with some of Singapore’s most critically acclaimed artists, writers and intellectuals; currently we are working closely with our Associate Artists. Just as importantly, younger and emerging artists are constantly approaching us to use our venues, and to get our support.

The Substation is a recipient of the National Arts Council’s Major Grant 2014 – 2017.
