The Culture Academy was established in 2015 by the Ministry of Culture Community and Youth to groom the next generation of cultural leaders in the public sector. Guided by its vision to be a centre of excellence for the development of culture professionals and administrators, the Culture Academy’s work spans three areas: Education and Capability Development, Research and Scholarship and Thought Leadership. In these areas, the Culture Academy provides networking opportunities, platforms for exchange of creative ideas and offers professional development workshops, public lectures and publications to nurture thought leaders in Singapore’s cultural scene.
Some of our key collaborators have included the Smithsonian Institution, Reinwardt Academie, Asian National Museums Association, AusHeritage, the National Gallery Singapore, the National Museum Singapore and the Asian Civilisations Museum, not to mention other government organizations inside and outside Singapore.
