Award 2018

The Keppel Centre for Art Education National Gallery Singapore

With its free admission and mantra ‘Children first, parents second!’ the Keppel Centre is an excellent example of a dynamic 21st century education centre within an art gallery, introducing children to art at an early age while acknowledging the importance of lifelong learning.

The exhibitions are constantly inspired by the permanent collections of the museum and encourage families to visit the National Gallery as well as the Keppel Centre. The involvement of local artists who are inspired by the museum collections, in collaboration with the dedicated education team, has led to the production of excellent, well designed exhibitions for younger visitors.

The Museum of Puppetry, Ljubljana, Slovenia received a Special Commendation for its strong commitment to make a collection of national relevance accessible to young visitors by encompassing both a multi-layered presentation, which shows the collection’s richness and the urgency of preservation as well as its great potential for learning and new ideas, targeted at different age-spans.
