Established in 2003, Art Outreach is Singapore’s only art education charity. Our vision is a visually literate public, comfortable in engaging with various aspects of visual art, and with a basic appreciation of art history, especially with art that is relevant to Singapore’s heritage.
In addition to our school programmes and community tours and workshops, we organise an annual exhibition of works from private collections as a platform for collectors to share their advocacy for art and artists with the public. We also support the professional development of emerging artists and curators through an art prize, and we provide a community art space for independent practitioners to organise exhibitions and art presentations.
We are looking for an organised and dynamic individual to join our team, working closely with our Head of Special Projects and Chief Creative to plan and execute a variety of unique art programmes, and develop creative campaigns to drive awareness and engagement around our mission.
This is an exciting opportunity to join an established art organisation that is passionate about making visual art accessible to the public and developing a vibrant art community in Singapore, with room for development and growth. No day will be the same as you work in a continuous learning environment in a small team that welcomes your insights and will encourage you to implement and bring your ideas to fruition.
This is a varied role and you will need to be flexible and willing to take on a range of tasks.
