The Polish-Singapore Friendship Foundation is a Polish registered non-government foundation that aims to cross-promote polish culture and art in the Republic of Singapore and vice versa, through the fostering of international relations between cultural institutions, artists and other relevant stakeholders.

In Singapore, we have wide network of enthusiastic partners with great understanding of local culture who have vast interest to expand the exposure to Polish-European culture and art in Asia including Singapore. From our track record, we are proud  that our cultural projects have had an overwhelmingly positive response in Singapore since our inception. 

For the ongoing projects, FPS&A partnered with different institutions both private and public. Recently, we organised exhibitions displaying artistic photos of the Republic of Poland presented in conjunction with local Singaporean artists held in prominent locations in 2022 to 2023. 

FPS&A is proud that Lufthansa Airlines is the sponsor of the "Amber Road," the biggest project for the year 2023. Through FPS&A, the management team of Lufthansa, along with twelve Singaporean tourism experts, visited Gdańsk. Our goal, which was the successful promotion of Gdańsk and Singapore in the tourism, business, and artistic industries, has been achieved.

We have also organised community engagement events in shopping malls for cultural appreciation of music through a local artist playing piano pieces written by a Polish composer. During main events in Singapore, we introduced the attendees to Polish short stories and recitals of Baltic Folklore songs. FPS&A  is on-track for establishing a sister Foundation with the office in Singapore. 

All of operations of the Foundation is funded through the goodwill of donors. To  contribute to our activities please reach out to us. 

The FPS&A would like to stress that the Foundation is an apolitical organisation. The annual report is submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Minister Radosław Sikorski.

FPS&A is proud to have successfully completed the grand project of bringing a group of Singaporeans, NATAS, from Singapore to Poland. This project was realized thanks to the cooperation of the city of Gdańsk, the Union of Maritime Cities and Municipalities, represented by director Marcin Makowski, and the airline Lufthansa.

A group of twelve Singaporeans arrived in Gdańsk under the patronage of President Agnieszka Koltun. Upon their arrival, they immediately met with Vice President Krystian Koterbski, who ensured that the entire stay of NATAS went according to plan. The plan involved business meetings with key individuals in Gdańsk involved in tourism. It is impossible to mention all the people here, but starting with the Singaporean ambassador to FPS&A, Paul Singh Gill, we appreciate the support we received in this adventure of exploring the Amber Road , which is associated with progress in the field of business culture, connecting the charm of amber.

The project of bringing Singaporeans to Poland was initiated by Desmond Chin Tjao Khang from the Singapore branch of Lufthansa. FPS&A presented this project to Philipp Bonkatz, the Chief Director of Lufthansa in Asia, who also came to Gdańsk to attend a dedicated conference held at the Holiday Inn Hotel. During the conference, he met with several individuals including Michał Dargacz, the Director of Gdańsk Lech Wałęsa Airport, and Łukasz Wysocki, the Director of the Gdańsk Tourism Organization.

During the meeting, our guests presented a crystal trophy awarded to "Tourism-Friendly Cities" and officially invited the city of Gdańsk to participate in the NATAS Fair, the largest industry event in Singapore, where FPS&A will represent Poland.

Grzegorz Kempinsky

Grzegorz Kempinsky has honorably accepted the role of Ambassador of Culture for the Polish-Singapore Friendship Foundation. His deep interest in the Singaporean cultural scene and commitment to developing cultural initiatives allow the Foundation to increasingly open doors to the world of art. As a promoter of culture, Grzegorz Kempinsky makes an invaluable contribution to the development of the Polish art scene, which is evident in both his creative work and organizational activities. Grzegorz Kempinsky is a distinguished figure in the world of Polish culture, a graduate of directing at the PWSFTViT in Łódź. His career includes roles such as Artistic Director in prestigious theaters and cultural institutions in Poland. In his professional and private life, he encounters an international environment where culture becomes a bridge connecting people. His ambassadorship in the Foundation is another step in promoting the culture of Singapore and Asia, which underscores his passion for supporting international exchange. Grzegorz Kempinsky, as a interpreter of theatrical literature, understands the importance of exchanging texts and presentations for audiences from different cultures. His interest in the development of culture in Singapore, often seen as a pearl in the South Asian region, stems from a belief in the value of intercultural dialogue and presenting art in a new light, adapted to cultural diversity. Grzegorz Kempinsky is particularly engaged in the process of adapting works to meet the expectations and understanding of an international audience, which is key to enriching the artistic scene.


FPS&A aims to organise events, exhibitions, meetings and other relevant platforms to better promote art across different cultures. This way, local residents and visitors get to experience cultures from across the world and be a linkway for expatriates living in a foreign country to have a slice of home while abroad. Additionally, FPS&A wants to support pre-existing initiatives that are aligned with our goals.


Make your culture an asset

Essentially, FPS&A would like to create a cultural exchange hub for people from Asia and Poland to form friendships through the arts, science and business.
