Named after British General Sir Webb Gillman, Gillman Barracks is set amid lush greenery and was once the stronghold of the First Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. The conserved colonial barracks now house galleries and creative businesses, as well as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA). The international galleries feature diverse and ever-changing contemporary art exhibitions, while the CCA aims to bolster the region’s visual arts landscape through its international artist residency, research and exhibition programmes.

SAM houses the national art collection of Singapore and has the largest public collection of contemporary Southeast Asian art and this year the training offers an extension to guiding in the Gillman Barracks.
