Empowering through Arts and Education

EDUCATION

SMRT Learning Journey is an educational outreach programme that shares the story behind what goes into your daily commute. The programme caters to Community Groups, Grassroots Leaders, Secondary, ITE, Pre-Tertiary and Tertiary students. 

 

The SMRT Learning Journey brings participants to Kim Chuan Depot, the world’s largest underground depot and home to the fully‑automated Circle Line. The programme highlights safety and security features within our train network and offer participants a glimpse into our behind the scenes activities.

 

Tours are conducted on alternate Thursdays, in the afternoon. Admission is free. Photography is not allowed.

ARTS

SMRT believes in supporting the local arts scene. Since 2011, we have been working with Art Outreach, a non-profit organisation that promotes art education in Singapore, to conduct the Art in Transit tour. This is an art tour of the city’s public train stations, highlighting a series of key artwork and installations along the Circle Line. This guided tour showcases works created by Singaporean artists that reflect the cultural and historical heritage of the community and the area around the station.

In celebration of SG50, SMRT collaborated with Pathlight School and commissioned 50 pieces of transport-themed artwork. These works of art by Pathlight students and alumni are displayed island-wide in the form of wall stickers, billboard posters, and large format light boxes across SMRT’s train network.


In November 2015, 19 paintings were officially unveiled at Bishan MRT station. The rest of the paintings were progressively displayed across the network. These 50 commissioned works of art will continue to be displayed until March 2016.   
Pathlight School serves students with autism aged 7 to 18 years and is Singapore’s first autism-focused school offering a unique blend of Singapore's mainstream academic curriculum with life readiness skills.
