RESEARCH BY PRACTICE: A 21ST CENTURY APPROACH
All research starts with ideas. More than two decades after its humble beginnings, LASALLE can look back on a long tradition of practice-led research in art and design. The impressive list of successful LASALLE alumni, who were prominently involved in shaping Singapore’s arts scene, attests to the institution’s strength in providing an appropriate academic environment for the creation of novel ideas and new knowledge.
LASALLE values the professional practice of all fulltime and part-time staff as one of its most important assets. Our unique college environment is formed by a faculty of Singaporean and international artists and educators, originating from more than 20 countries worldwide, many are renowned experts in their areas and actively involved in exhibitions, conferences, and performances. The incorporation of their respective expertise in course delivery closely relates teaching and learning to a broad range of theoretical and intellectual concerns in contemporary art and design practice.
Hence, students are constantly exposed to firsthand experience in current research practices, leading to the acquiring of a wide set of knowledge and skills by the time they graduate. These skills enable them to successfully adjust to the multifaceted demands of the creative industries. As a Singaporean institution for tertiary arts education, positioned at the crossroads of perse cultures within a multi-ethnic society, LASALLE aims to add a distinctive Singaporean viewpoint to the ongoing debate on repositioning artistic practice in a post-industrialised society.
As a private, non-profit arts institution, LASALLE College of the Arts is a registered Institute of Public Character, approved by the Commissioner of Charities, and operates autonomously under the constitution of LASALLE College of the Arts Limited.
