Mr Colin Goh embarked on his journey of promoting and raising funds for the Arts and its communities since 1991, starting as Associate Producer of various musicals and arts festivals in Singapore.
Colin believes that arts must be shared with the other communities around the world. With the inspiring pilot of Spotlight Singapore in Hong Kong, over 5000 artists have benefited from this international exchange and supported by the business communities.
To develop the giving culture, Colin initiated 3 community funds to support the endeavors of young and aspiring artists from and into Singapore: The Business Times Budding Artists Fund, The International Young Artists Exchange Fund and The SING50 Fund.
In 2003, Colin was appointed as the CEO of The Old Parliament House Limited to restore and develop Singapore’s 200-year-old government building into an arts and culture centre. The project won the “Best Conservation Award” by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Singapore.
In 2014, he started an independent non-profit organization: The RICE Company Limited, devoted to harnessing the creative potentiality of its community for the communities. The company currently manages a 10,000 sq ft arts space, The Little Arts Academy - providing free arts training for underprivileged children. It also raised SGD$3.5 million and converted a 15,000 sq ft car park space into an arts and creative space for youths.
Colin currently serves on several arts boards and committees as well as school advisory panels.
