SAM is taking part in Start Small Dream Big (SSDB), an initiative to encourage pre-schools to create authentic platforms for children to innovate, problem-solve and tap on their unique strengths to help others.

The theme for SSDB 2020 is A Caring & Inclusive Home for All, which encourages all children to do their part and care for their community, in their own ways.
To facilitate the learning and developmental needs of pre-school children, SAM would be providing educational resources such as a DIY puzzles to the child goodie bags.

The artwork featured this year is We Are Family by artist, Vicente Delgado. The artwork is made of soft sculptures which have been sewn together with the figures' different colours representing diversity and akin to members of a family, connected by their similarities and differences.

Your contribution would help 50,000 pre-schoolers receive an activity kit with art resources to facilitate their learning and developmental needs.

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.

During this period, we continue to hold exhibitions and events at partner venues and spaces like the Regional Libraries of Tampines, Woodlands and Jurong. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest information about our building works and museum programming.

The redevelopment is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), and Tote Board.
