SAM launched its first Access internship opportunity in 2020. This six-month internship (from September to February) is open to full-time matriculated students with a local or foreign educational institution or fresh graduates who are keen to find out more about the Arts and Culture industry. Mr Caleb Tay, a fresh graduate from Singapore Management University with visual-impairment is responsible for helping to develop resources (i.e. activities and audio descriptions) for the SAM Touch Collection, designing and hosting online programmes, and is one of SAM’s representatives in the Museum Roundtable Access and Inclusion Community of Practice. A keen and fast learner, Mr Tay has also helped the team better understand and work with persons with visual-impairment.
