Javanese Classical Dance Workshop & Others

Hello there,

Migrant Voices is looking for new volunteers!

We're a group of young arts-lovers who came together through working on various arts projects involving migrant workers - namely a CD project and a photo essay project that were both launched as part ofthe M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2007. We recently registered as anindependent society and have continued to run many arts activities by and for migrant workers - do check out our Drama and Music blogs on ure right.
We are currently we are looking for people to help us:

a) Co-ordinate a classical Javanese dance workshop for Indonesian domestic workers. If there might be any interested venue sponsors onthis list, please contact us too at!

b) Get a community-based soap opera project off the ground - see Brooklyn community theatre activist Kate Gardnerused theatre exercises to generate soap opera plots, shot them, and sent episodes via DHL to Kenya where another team carried out the same process. Over the course of a year, they wove the storylines createdin 2 countries together and 150 volunteers were involved in thecreation of the entire soap opera! We need aspiring and experienced writers, directors, actors, community theatre folks, filmmakers,editors... the list is endless!

c) We're still selling the CD of songs written and performed bymigrant workers to raise funds for various NGOs such as HOME and TWC2,so do contact us if you'd like to buy the CD ($12), or tohelp distribute it.We're always open to collaboration, so if you have any ideas/ would just like to get involved in some way, do drop us a line as well at

Looking forward to hearing from you!:)
