How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

Playeum is an independent charity organisation (IPC) that creates equal opportunities for children in Singapore to develop creativity and confidence through play and the arts. In particular, we work with children from marginalised backgrounds and children with varying disabiities.

We hold safe and non-judgemental spaces for children to have a voice and be heard, as well as to build 21st century life skills such as critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Through this, children are empowered to thrive and be the best versions of themselves.

Our work also supports adults in becoming powerful creative facilitators for children as we shift mindsets to seeing children as creative and competent. Over the past year, we have reached out to more than 2,200 children and adults through our impact work. We work with parents, social workers, volunteers and educators.

Support our cause with a donation here today. Your support enables our work with children, to level the playing field.

Every donation dollar will be matched 1-for-1 through the National Arts Council Cultural Matching Fund.

Our Programmes

Playeum creates social impact through:

1. Play and arts programmes for children from adverse backgrounds,
2. Training for adults who work with children (parents, educators, social workers, volunteers), and
3. Research and creation of resources that promote 21st century life skills, voice, and agency in children

High-Touch Programmes

In collaboration with primary school/social service agencies, we design and execute play and STEAM-based programmes for latchkey students and children from marginalised backgrounds to develop their confidence, school motivation, and interest in science and technology. In the last one year, more than 95 children from South Central Community Family Service Centre, Clementi Primary School, MSF Community Link (Kembangan-Chai Chee), Sunbeam Place @ Singapore Children's Society and Campus Impact have benefitted from this initiative.

Playeum At Home

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, we responded to the immediate need for children to have more opportunities to play and develop resilience while being forced to stay home. Playeum At Home is a series of virtual play sessions that encourages children to take charge and discover different ways of experimenting and creating with everyday recyclable materials. We collaborated with local non-profit arts organisation 3Pumpkins, Singapore Repertory Theatre, & artists Isabelle Desjeux and Ranae Lee-Nasir in some of these sessions.
