About this event

Who are we

My Community is a non-profit organisation which aims to preserve the common man's story for our collective memory.

Why are volunteers important to My Community

In My Community, volunteers are invited to help research and document social memories through community-based research. With the collected memories, volunteers are given the opportunity to co-create exhibitions and organise programmes, festival, and tours to celebrate our shared culture and heritage. By engaging and involving the community, volunteers can champion greater community involvement and ownership in cultural management and urban governance

Who am I

I am a storyteller who is passionate about my city and my neighbourhood. With a great sense of humour and outgoing personality, I love to creatively share my knowledge through tours and visual aids. I am also willing to learn and exchange knowledge with others.

How can I help

As a volunteer, I can help run the free community walking tours across some of the Singapore's most iconic neighbourhoods including Tanglin Halt and Tiong Bahru. Besides conducting enjoyable tours for public, I also play an important role of ensuring precious stories and memories of these neighbourhoods are collected and passed on to future generations.

I take the initiative to make friends with my fellow volunteers and participate in trainings and sharing. Once a month, I volunteer my time with my fellow volunteer friends and conduct tours for the public.
