Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre aims to be a place where resources and knowledge coincide to ensure traditional Chinese culture are preserved and pass on, while promoting multiracial harmony and continuous development of the local Chinese culture.
A new building has been planned and is expected to be completed in mid-2016. It will be a place where one can expect to find high-quality performances, exhibitions and cultural activities. The centre will serve as a platform where local ethnic Chinese and their younger generation can gather and interact here, regardless whether they are English or Chinese speaking. New citizens can also learn and understand local customs and culture to better integrate into the local community.
The centre is dedicated to strengthen mutual understanding and increase cohesiveness among the different races and groups, by achieving racial harmony and apprehension of our local culture. The centre aspires to become the preferred agency for conducting research on Chinese culture in Singapore; and to establish itself as a local cultural landmark and also the regional cultural fortress in South East Asia.
