OH! Open House 2012: Call for volunteers.

Interested in leading your own art walkabout in Singapore’s hippest neighbourhood?

Then look no further – volunteer to help out with the OH! Open House 2012 walkabouts next year!

What you’ll be doing:

  • Bringing people into six real-life homes that’ve been transformed into art spaces and acting as their guide.

What you’ll receive:

  • FREE opportunities to meet new and interesting people,
  • A FREE special edition OH! 2012 t-shirt,
  • FREE training on how to talk about art, among other FREEbies I haven’t mentioned.

Commitment intensity:

  1. One training session at Evil Empire on either Sun, 15 Jan 2012 (2pm)  or Mon, 16 Jan 2012 (8pm),
  2. One walk-through in said hippest neighbourhood on Sun, 12 Feb 2012 (2pm) or Mon, 13 Feb 2012 (8pm), and
  3. One or more volunteer sessions on:
    • Sat, 18 Feb 2012 from 4 – 8.30pm,
    • Sun, 19 Feb 2012 from 4 – 8.30pm,
    • Sat, 25 Feb 2012 from 4 – 8.30pm, and/or
    • Sun, 26 Feb 2012 from 4 – 8.30pm.

It’s quite intense, but it’s over a relatively short period of time, so do spare the time to go if you can.

I would do this, but unfortunately, I have a National Service call-up over that period, which means I’m gonna need the weekends to catch up with work (yes, that’s the price of being male in Singapore).

In any case, more info/sign-ups at the OH! Open House 2012 website.

P.S. If you’re a student, you should totally volunteer – besides the learning opportunities, you’ll get CIP hours too!

Friends of W!LD RICE: BEAUTY & THE BEAST seeks Front-Of-House Volunteers!

I’d like to say I cut my teeth volunteering for W!ld Rice, but unfortunately, the truth ain’t so spectacular. I did use to volunteer previously when I was in junior college/high school because I wanted to chalk-up Community Service hours (did not particularly like going to homes for the aged) and preferred to do something I enjoyed.

The perks? Getting to watch really good shows for free (think Animal Farm).

So go for it if you haven’t tried it before – it’ll definitely be worth your while.


Dear Theatre Volunteers,

We are looking for volunteers to assist at the FRONT-OF-HOUSE (FOH) for BEAUTY & THE BEAST!

The world’s favourite love story gets turned on its head in true W!LD RICE style this festive season.

  • Welcome patrons,
  • Sell show programmes and merchandise, and
  • Collect feedback forms from patrons after the show.
