We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy Art thus the Gallery seeks to engage with communities who do not naturally visit the Gallery to do so and come back for more. Your donation contributes to one session for 40 participants from the under-served community such as the financial underprivileged families and children, migrant and foreign domestic workers as well as the elderly living in homes. The session includes a tour of selected artworks in the Gallery and a craft workshop for the group to try their hands at art-making. Transport and materials will be provided at each session.
Your contribution would improve the quality of lives of these beneficiaries and go a long way in fostering a cohesive society for the nation. Support the spirit of inclusiveness in art today.
A $25 donation allows the Gallery to enrich one person's visit to the Gallery and opens up to endless possibilities.
About the Charity
National Gallery Singapore is a leading visual arts institution which oversees the world's largest public collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian modern art. Situated at the birthplace of modern Singapore, in the heart of the Civic District, the Gallery is housed in two national monuments - City Hall and former Supreme Court, the Gallery aims to be a progressive museum that creates dialogues between the art of Singapore, Southeast Asia and the world to foster and inspire a creative and inclusive society. This is reflected in our collaborative research, education, long-term and special exhibitions, and innovative programming. The Gallery also works with international museums to jointly present Southeast Asian art in the global context, positioning Singapore as a key node in the global visual arts scene.
In 2019, the Gallery was the only museum in Southeast Asia that received a ranking in The Art Newspaper's annual global survey of attendance at art museums, taking 32nd place. It was the first museum in Asia to receive the Children in Museums Award by the European Museum Academy and Hands On! International Association of Children in Museums in 2018. The Gallery also won the awards for 'Best Theme Attraction' at TTG Travel Awards 2017, 'Best Attraction Experience', 'Breakthrough Contribution to Tourism' and 'Best Customer Service (Attractions)' at the prestigious Singapore Tourism Awards in 2016 for its role in adding to the vibrancy of Singapore's tourism landscape.
