The AIT programme started in 1997 with the NEL and aims to enhance the daily journeys of Singaporeans by bringing artworks closer to them, and turning train stations into places connecting the community and the arts.

Under the programme, artists are commissioned to create artworks that integrate with the stations’ architectural finishes of the stations which also connect people to local histories, geographies and communities. LTA conducts a public call for artists for each new rail line. The artworks can be seen at stations along the Circle Line, Downtown Line, in addition to the NEL.
