Community Assistant

Community Assistant

One of our community engagement initiatives involves bringing arts-based workshops to various Voluntary Welfare Organisations. Each year, we conduct about 150 of such workshops and we are always looking for volunteers.

You will work with participants of all ages, including those with physical and special needs. In addition, you will assist professional artist(s) and facilitate both operational and arts-making processes. Responsibilities include prepping for the workshop as well as setting up and clearing out the space.

If you’re proactive, patient and have lots of empathy, this could be suitable for you!

As a not-for-profit arts centre, we organise up around 3,000 events annually to expose people from all walks of life to the arts. With several festivals happening throughout the year, volunteering offers you a chance to pick up new skills, make some friends and learn the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes of a festival.

Responsibilities include:

  • Providing assistance to visitors at Esplanade
  • Preparing and facilitating arts activities
  • Distributing festival information and materials on different platforms

If you enjoy meeting new people and communicate well, this is ideal for you! Volunteers should be reliable, enthusiastic, proactive, flexible and good team players.

Be a part of a team and help to make a great festival happen!
