"Over the years I have seen how Singapore Street Festival has provided young artistes and musicians with a base platform to pursue their passion and bring the craft to greater heights. Many of the guys at D'J Party started playing big gigs on this stage and are now producing their own material, music educators or part of the local music scene."
YOUTH LEADER, D'J PARTY
I have been with SSF since 2003. It has been a great learning journey. I met a lot of people from different walks of life and different cultures. It taught me how to be more understanding and to communicate better with others. I also learnt that no matter how organised we are, problems are inevitable throughout the event. These sudden problems gave me opportunities to build up on my problem solving skills. These skills that i picked up through my years in the festival have been enriching and can an be applied anywhere that I am.
I took a break for 3 years frm SSF and in 2015, I came back and was involved in running the stage again. It was not an easy task as there were hiccups along the way, but it was still enjoyable and satisfying.
Happy 15th Anniversary SSF! Thank you for all the learning opportunities!
Volunteering for Singapore Street Festival
It provides opportunities for you to meet people from all walks of life and different ages, pushing you to develop better communication skills which you can apply to your everyday life. You will pick up skills that you will never be able to learn in the classroom, such as managing of logistics, events and manpower, depending on the role you take on.
As a volunteer for Singapore Street Festival, it has helped me to grow into a better person and raise my awareness to situations which my younger self may not have been able to see before. The SSF youth leaders will share their stories and experiences, and motivate you to hone your leadership and stress management skills. Volunteering is different from working; it encourages you to build friendships with different disciplines and what’s more in the midst of all the festival hype, you get to have fun at the same time!
