About Us

Who We Are

VICPA is the collective voice for freelance and self-employed creative professionals. We advance our members’ work prospects through advocacy, work-related advisory, resources, industry-wide collaborations and community.

Today, a lack of industry standards has contributed to an undervaluation of services. This has set back the industry’s progress, and if perpetuated, could result in the eventual outflow of creative professionals.

VICPA strives to put in place Safeguards and Support to give creative professionals the confidence and footing to traverse uncertainties and navigate new possibilities.

Standing strong together as VICPA, we have the power to #TiltTheScale #LiftTheTrade and to go the distance as practitioners and professionals.

Who We Represent

Our members are at the heart of what we do. In this regard, VICPA is guided by our constitution Objects.

Objects:

  1. To be a collective and representative voice for members to relevant Government agencies and stakeholders on issues that impact livelihood and trade practices;
  2. To strengthen and uphold a professional code of ethics to guide trade practices of members and affirm their professionalism;
  3. To support members in continual learning and upskilling so as to strengthen their professional competencies and relevancy of skills and trade practices;
  4. To collaborate with relevant Government agencies and stakeholders to enhance procurement practices and promote better understanding and appreciation of the value of services by members;
  5. To foster friendly relations and encourage better understanding and co-operation among members as well as between members and relevant stakeholders;
  6. To associate or affiliate with any national or international organisation that has similar objects as the Association, including the National Trades Union Congress, and Singapore Labour Foundation; and
  7. To promote generally the material, educational, social, cultural, recreational, welfare and interest of the members and their dependants and to do all things as may be necessary, incidental, or conducive to the attainment of any of these objects.
