While the Community Centres may have re-opened after Phase 2, safe-distancing measures have made it difficult for the usual classes and events to resume at a full scale. Despite this, community centres turned to live streaming to supplement the usual physical activities they held.
Just like the community centres, you can also start live streaming your events to make up for the lack of physical events to engage with your audiences.
Read on to find out how the community centres made use of live streaming to engage with their residents, and how you too can keep your audiences and stakeholders engaged in this Covid-19 pandemic by hosting live streams.

Online Workshop Live Stream
Toa Payoh Central Zone 2 RC held a unicorn mooncake making workshop earlier in September. Hosted over Zoom, this workshop gathered parents and young children together during the September holidays to make unicorn-shaped mooncakes. The baking materials beforehand and taught how to mould their mooncakes into the cute unicorn shapes.

Tampines East Community Club was one of the many community centres to hold walk-in interview sessions for their residents. Residents could schedule a mock Zoom interview with an employer to improve their interview skills which would help them land that next job. This was surely helpful for residents looking for a career switch or who needed help with acing an interview.
Industry Sharing Sessions
Making the switch to become a hawker is not something most Singaporeans would think of doing. As such, Cairnhill Community Club hosted a sharing session with hawkers Douglas Ng and Paul Liew to give residents an insight into what life is like as a modern-day hawker.
Industry sharing sessions like this helped residents gain a better understanding of these less conventional careers, right in the comfort and safety of their homes.
Live Stream Fitness Classes
Since everyone was at home more often due to the Circuit Breaker, many community centres held online fitness classes to help residents get active and stay healthy. Pilates sessions were held by Sembawang West Community Sport Club to encourage residents to get fit after many months of being cooped up at home.
Remember when jellyfish were sighted on the shores of Sentosa?
PA PassionWaVe took this opportunity to hold this informational webinar to educate residents about the jellyfishes who called Singapore home. They also taught them how to deal with potential injuries from jellyfish stinging.
Other community centres also held educational webinars to keep residents interested in engaging in lifelong learning.
One key aspect of hosting a good educational webinar is a good audio quality and an engagement with your audience. If you need to run a webinar with a professional camera, multiple camera switching and good audio or background music, our team can provide this service.
Virtual Tours Live Stream
During the recent September holidays, Bishan Community Club partnered up with Wildlife Reserves Singapore to provide a virtual tour of the Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari and Jurong Bird Park.
Participants had the opportunity to discover the unique personalities of the many furry friends like the Great Horned Owl, Asian Small-Clawed Otters & White Raccoon. They also got to ask questions and hear insights from the zoo keepers.
Virtual tours like these are just one of the many live stream ideas you can make use of live streaming to provide your audience a one-of-a-kind event experience.
Live Stream Musical Performances
For “Old Boy, Old Girl” (OBOG) Wind Symphony Interest Group, being unable to resume regular practices with full attendance due to the COVID-19 restrictions on musical groups have been disheartening for them.
Nevertheless, the symphony came together in smaller sections to perform nostalgic classics like Shut Up and Dance and Home to play music for the community while keeping their passion for music alive. The group recorded their performances over Zoom while streaming their performances over Instagram and Facebook.
Another music performance that was live streamed was Red Kite Music’s F For Fantastic event. This live stream performance, in collaboration with the National Arts Council, featured women DJs who were mixing music from their studio.
If you are looking for live music entertainment for your live streams, do look for Red Kite Music who has over a decade of experience managing live music venues.
Engaging Your Audiences via Live Stream
These community live streams brought people from all walks of life together, just like real life events do.
While the community centres used Zoom as the main platform for their live streams, there are many other public and private live streaming platforms out there that you can explore.
Just like real-life events, you would want your event to project the most positive impression among your viewers. If you would like to run top-notch live stream events with ease, we would suggest engaging a professional live stream service provider.
