Chinese New Year Volunteers Required in Bath!!!

The Museum of East Asian Art are currently looking for volunteers to help out at our free Lunar New Year Extravaganza, 25 January 2009.  We will be celebrating the Year of the Ox with lots of Chinese and East Asian arts and crafts activities, Chinese Zodiac face painting, musical performances, martial arts demonstrations and traditional lion dances.  The event will run from 1 - 4pm in the historic Ball Room at the Bath Assembly Rooms, and will be a fun and festive afternoon for people of all ages. 

 We need volunteers to:

  • Take part in martial arts demonstrations
    • Our martial arts master will be demonstrating Shaolin Si Quan Fa (Shaolin Temple Boxing) and Tai Chi.  If you have any martial arts experience, are physically fit, and don’t mind being used as a carefully choreographed target in front of lots of people, then we would love to have you join us!  
    • You must be able to commit to practice at the Museum at least once a week between now and 25 January (with the exception of the week around Christmas and New Year’s).
  • Perform!
    • Do you play any traditional Chinese or East Asian instruments? Are you able to sing any folk tunes or perform traditional Lunar New Year dances?  We would love to have you on board! 
    • This is a great opportunity to showcase your talents whilst celebrating the Year of the Ox.  
  • Run arts and crafts activities
    • From ink painting to face painting, we need "crafty" individuals to help man our activitiy stations, assit children with cutting, pasting and folding, and keep activities well-stocked and orderly 
  • Steward the event 
    • help people to cross Bennett Street safely between the Museum of East Asian Art and the Assembly Rooms
    • assist with crowd control
    • keep people informed of performance times, on-going activities and directions around the facilities
