Tan commented on Pasar Malam reinvented UPDATED 13/12

I think it should actually start off medium sized to big sized. The MAAD is held in a relatively big space, almost like the size of a multi-purpose hall. The group starting the events off should also do publicity, convincing people to start stalls etc. It could be within a central location where at least a few precincts of people could come by. Publicity is definitely required, and definitely a lot of time (2 months) for word of mouth marketing to happen.

Yea it needs to be quite a scale. Such pasar malams could even be held like two times a year! Especially just before Chinese New Year when people do spring cleaning and realise they have a lot of stuff that they are hoarding.

Hey Maria, I tried to do abit of sequencing for the concepts that were selected. Almost like a roadmap.

1) I actually see the setting up of a core group of enthusiasts (not the RCs, probably younger, more innovative and more enthusiastic group, interested in ground community activities) as a first step to leading this change. Annet's Wingpost idea could be used to gather and grow such a ground up community enthusiast team. [Annet's Wingpost]

2) Equipping them with the toolkits to effect/manage/structure the community events etc. [Hao's Dish In Dish Out]

3) Setting up and running the different ground community initiatives [Maria's Pasar Malam concept , Eugene Tay's recycling concept and James' Robertson's Flash Sports concept]

Check out MAAD https://www.facebook.com/goMAAD?fref=ts

Its a 'pasar malam' for designers and artists. It's quite popular now in Singapore. They do it once a month if I am not wrong.
