HAN Heritage Champions

Heritage Champions: Call for Volunteers for Heritage Activation Nodes

Heritage is for all! Join us in developing vibrant festivals and dynamic programmes that re-discover and celebrate the heritage of our neighbourhoods! Become a Heritage Champion for our Heritage Activation Nodes (HANs) where you can play the following roles, both physically and digitally:

  • Be the face of HAN events and contribute to visitor experience;
  • Facilitate HAN programmes, activities, and trails;
  • Provide expertise in research and writing;
  • Befriend HAN participants, and more!

The first HAN at Katong-Joo Chiat is launching in April 2024 and a myriad of volunteering opportunities will be available from end-2023. As a HAN Heritage Champion, you can also expect to undergo expert-led training to gain valuable knowledge, which will help you grow and make a greater impact in promoting Singapore's cultural heritage. Do note that a minimum commitment of one year, with contribution to at least two volunteering roles, will be required.

Embrace this chance to make a tangible impact on our community's legacy – become a Heritage Champion today and indicate your interest to volunteer via this form.* You may also refer to our FAQs or email us at for more information.

*Note: An information session will be conducted in December 2023 for aspiring HAN Heritage Champions. During this session, we will share more about the HAN initiative, what to expect as a HAN Heritage Champion, and the available volunteering opportunities. Further details of this session will be provided separately, so register your interest for more information.


The National Heritage Board's Heritage Activation Nodes (HAN) initiative seeks to provide opportunities for the community to participate in and co-develop projects aimed at celebrating the heritage of their neighbourhoods.
