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

The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) opened its doors in 1996 as the first fully dedicated visual arts museum in Singapore. Since then, we have built one of the world's most important collections of contemporary art by artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. We are committed to creating meaningful encounters with art for all our visitors, through our exhibitions, research, publications, public and educational outreach.

In 2019, our two museum sites - the former St. Joseph's Institution building on Bras Basah Road and former Catholic High School building on Queen Street, closed for a building redevelopment. With the aim to create an architectural landmark for contemporary art in Singapore, this major undertaking includes the preservation of the buildings' heritage architecture, thoughtfully blending the old and the new. When SAM re-opens, visitors can look forward to an iconic museum space where the public can experience and engage with art.
