Whether you would like to work at SAM or join us as a volunteer, there are different ways you can get involved in our mission to promote the appreciation and education of contemporary art to everyone.


Career Opportunities

It is an exciting time to join SAM!

SAM is the first fully dedicated visual arts museum in Singapore and has one of the world’s most important collections of contemporary art by artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. In 2019, our two museum sites closed for a building redevelopment. As our museum readies itself for its new look, there will be a series of interesting projects that you could play a part in.


SAM volunteers play a vital role in supporting the work of our staff. Volunteers may be exposed to areas in museum education, visitor service, and even public speaking. Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to develop career experience and gain a deeper connection with art. You can expect to learn more about art and artists through training and independent research and discovery. 


As a volunteer, you will:

  • attend insightful training courses conducted by SAM curators

  • learn everything about the Museum, including its rich history and future plans

  • meet and befriend like-minded people with a common interest in art

  • develop new skills and grow your confidence 


Recruitment for Singapore Biennale 2019 volunteers is now on too. To apply, please fill out and submit the Volunteer Registration Form.
