The Museum Volunteers group’s recruitment drive is now on for volunteer docents to guide public tours in English on Friday evenings as well as weekends at Singapore Art Museum!

Application deadline is 10th May 2015.

The Singapore Art Museum is most probably the only art museum in the world to focus on Asian contemporary art, and especially Southeast Asian contemporary art. It does not have any permanent gallery and almost all of its exhibitions are renewed with new themes and artworks every three to nine months.

If you are interested and want to know more, do attend one of the public briefings to be held at Glass Hall at Singapore Art Museum, at 1pm on both dates:

Saturdays, 11th & 25th April 2015

You may even get a chance to join a short tour of the museum to get an idea of a guided tour in an art space!
