SAM is focused on making contemporary art accessible to diverse groups of audiences by providing opportunities for more inclusive interaction. Our outreach programmes enable the young, and young at heart, to imagine exciting possibilities through art.

Through your support, participants from the community can take part in programmes such as:

Kopi, Teh and Contemporary Art (KTCA): a tour series led by seniors, for seniors, to make contemporary art more accessible for the elderly population. Designed for participants over the age of 50, these tours are conducted in English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil and promise an interactive, relaxed introduction to contemporary art.

SAM Touch Collection: a portable and interactive collection of artwork adaptations, specially designed for our visually-impaired community. The Touch Collection comprises of artworks which are part of SAM's collection, and relate to the social, cultural and historical aspects of Singapore.

SAM Touch Collection was featured in the CNA documentary, Seeing is Believing.

About the Charity

Singapore Art Museum opened in 1996 as the first art museum in Singapore. Also known as SAM, we present contemporary art from a Southeast Asian perspective for artists, art lovers and the art curious.

SAM is building one of the world's most important public collections of Southeast Asian contemporary art, and as a non-profit arts institution - it is our responsibility to preserve, research, exhibit and connect the art and artists to the public and future generations through thought-provoking exhibitions and meaningful programmes.

SAM is redefining the idea of the museum by presenting art in multiple spaces, including Tanjong Pagar Distripark and our two heritage buildings: the former St Joseph's Institution on Bras Basah Road, built in 1855 and now a National Monument; and the former Catholic High School across the road on Queen Street. The heritage buildings are currently closed for redevelopment and will re-open in 2026.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
