BIG changes are afoot at Arts Festival Limited, the holding company running the Singapore International Festival of Arts, which was in the news last week for a public e-mail spat between its two leaders.

On April 1, it merges with The Old Parliament House Limited to manage The Arts House near Empress Place and other arts spaces such as Goodman Arts Centre in Mountbatten and Aliwal Arts Centre in the Beach Road area, now run by The Old Parliament House Limited (TOPH).

A new merged entity will be formed to run the arts festival and these arts spaces. It will be called Arts House Limited and led by Ms Lee Chor Lin, 50, chief executive officer of Arts Festival Limited.

This was announced yesterday by Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong at The Arts House’s 10th anniversary celebration, which was attended by about 600 people.
