Collaboration with Lasalle

Every year, the Audience Team at ACM collaborates with students from tertiary institutions and art schools for special projects. Recent collaborations include inviting LASALLE’s dance students to perform for ACM After Dark in 2018 and Light to Night 2019, and students from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts who designed an outdoor installation for Light to Night 2019. Additionally, the ACM trains students to facilitate school programmes and tours. Students from Temasek Polytechnic’s Fashion & Design school facilitated an inclusive camp in June 2019, and students from Hwa Chong Institution (JC) continually volunteer to guide at ACM for a variety of age groups.

Should you be interested in a collaboration with us, please email our education team and your e-mail will be forwarded to the relevant manager in-charge.
