沈炜竣 Nick Shen Weijun

Winner of JCI Ten Outstanding Young Persons of the World 2014 for Cultural Achievement, Nick is a media personality who contributes immensely to the arts and culture scene in Singapore.

Nick first began his career in showbiz after winning the Singapore Star Search competition and Star Awards Best Newcomer in 1999, held by Singapore’s leading broadcasting company.

In 2011, Nick turned his passion for Chinese opera into a purpose and founded Tok Tok Chiang, an events management company where Nick dedicates his efforts in repositioning Chinese opera and culture, changing perspectives, and renewing interest in the audience. With his determination to perfecting this traditional art form, Nick mastered the unique Chinese art of Sichuan Mask Changing in 2012.

In 2017, Nick made further efforts to revive and promote this vanishing art form by taking over the helm as the troupe owner of Lao Sai Tao Yuan, a 155-year-old Teochew Opera Troupe. As the next-generation troupe owner, Nick is taking the initiative to promote this traditional art to the youths and the world in a bid to preserve its place in the heritage and culture of the ever-changing landscape of Singapore.

Despite dedicating his time and efforts in promoting the local arts and culture scene, Nick is still active in showbiz and constantly takes up new challenges in trying out different roles on screen. His wealth of acting experience has led to him being appointed as a drama instructor at Mediacorp’s Singapore Media Academy since 2014.
