Event description
Are you interested in facilitating discussions or oral interviews? Let's co-design the permanent My Queenstown Museum with the residents.

About this event

It's almost here. And we are getting very excited about our permanent home in Margaret Drive.

The new 300sqm space at Margaret Drive will be Singapore's first and biggest community museum that is run and funded by the community. After spending 3 years at our cozy shophouse museum in Tanglin Halt, we are excited to work with the uncles, aunties, little boys and girls on this community space. There will be a world-class exhibition, a community archives, VR exhibition and a little family history centre at our new community museum.

And this is the first time that a museum will be fully planned and designed with the community in Singapore.

If you were interested in being a part of history, join us or hear us out at our recruitment day on Saturday, 12 February or Sunday, 13 February 2022

Who are we looking for?

  • Facilitators - Facilitators who are keen to engage with the uncles, aunties, boys and girls on focus group discussions, community engagement and surveys to find out what they
  • Cultural Mappers - Volunteers who will befriend former Tanglin Halt residents who relocate to Dawson and create opportunities to meet with their new and former neighbours
  • Oral History Interviewers and Archivists - Volunteers who are keen to conduct oral history interviews with the elderly residents to document their stories and artefacts.
  • Graphics, Interior and Exhibition Designers - Volunteers who are keen to communicate with residents visually and graphically and help us create posters, flyers, spatial layouts and schematic layouts
  • Engineers & Architects - Volunteers who are trained engineers, architects and qualified personnels (QPs) who can help advise on the construction of the museum.

Some Pointers

  • We are looking for volunteers who are keen to be a part of our team if you enjoy having conversations with people, especially the elderly and can speak languages apart from English (such as Mandarin, Malay, Tamil, or Chinese dialects)
  • If you were not trained in cultural mappers, oral history interviews or facilitation, fret not! Onboarding programmes will be conducted!
