The world of the Art opens many doors for potential, growth and personal enrichment. With the right guidance, motivation and hard work, I strongly believe that it would lead me to many interesting career opportunities, most notably as far as I am concerned, an Art manager of sorts. Personally, Art is one of the most appealing and diverse subjects to work with as it expresses itself through various supports. It allows you to gain access to various cultures throughout the world, their beliefs and history through a single still image, a sculpture or even a white canvas.Art is an uncompromised, satirical and beautiful gateway to the world and the history of mankind. Art is an endless expression of many forms. Art is not only beautiful, choking, impressive or esthetical, Art is a testimony of historical patrimony, and this is one of the main reasons why I want to pursue Arts Management in NAFA.My interest in the subject grew noticeably during my ITE school years after which I began to meet and acquire insights from many friends and artists in Singapore, paving my curiosity into the art scene in Singapore. In my spare time, I develop a great enthusiasm for Art appreciation in museums. I am fascinated by both the richness of cultural depth surrounding our space and the intensity of our historical roots expressed through the form of Art. Ever since then, I consider my maiden journey to the world of Arts to have begun and the exploration from then is limitless. During my professional experience, I am fortunate enough to join the National University Singapore Museum as an operations management staff. I am the overall in-charge of operations and the day-to-day activities going on in the museum. Through my one and half years worth of work experience, I have acquired a great deal of knowledge of operating and managing a museum. I enjoy working together with other friendly colleagues from other teams in the museum, and they include the Curators team, Outreach team, Collections team and Admin Finance Team. I must say this has really helped broaden my horizon in the field of arts management.I have also been fortunate enough to have worked as a part-time gallery sitter with the Singapore Art Museum for a short stint of 4 months. My scope of work mainly lies in ensuring the artworks and gallery being operational at all times, which I believe, have greatly expanded my horizons and experiences with the arts. Outside of my work, I very much enjoy attending exhibitions opening and going to art fairs. I am also keen to learn more about the management and execution of art events and I aspire to do so one day with my own team.All this considered, I would like to make Art a greater part of my life and turn my passion for the subject into a career. I aim to work with a large museum and gallery exhibitor, as an exhibitions team or communications. As a mature professional, I can truly benefit from the cultural background I have acquired through my personal and professional activities and achieve success in my career.I realize I still have so much to learn and discover and I believe that taking up Arts Management in NAFA presents me with the perfect opportunity to achieve and realize my goals.
