Hi everyone...
the name's Pawzii... I'm new here...
Learnt about this forum through some friends... :D
I have just browsed through some of the threads and boy... there's so many things to learn from all of you! :bigeyes:

Well to cut to the chase...
I have a Expedition to Cambodia this December and I am eagerly seeking for participants who are into videogrpahy/photography and are passionate in giving the people of Cambodia a ray of hope. If you have a keen interest in Pottery and loves adventure... then all the more this Expedition is for you! Visual Arts/Design/Marketing major individuals are highly welcome too!

The Expedition name is called: Project Clay
Expedition dates: 1st to 18th December 2003
Application deadline: 20th Oct 2003

However, due to the limited preparation time, interested individuals are encouraged to send in their application as soon as possible, so that you can be included in the mailing list. There will be a briefing for all applicants shortly once we receive sufficient applicants. More details of the briefing will be made known to the applicants closer to the briefing date. Interviews may be conducted if response is overwhelming.

Hmmm... wondering how can I post a word document here? so that I can provide you with a brief introduction...
well, if you wish to find out more or have any further queries,
you can contact Ms Pam Wan via email: pawziiclay@yahoo.com
For more information on SIF, please visit http://www.sif.org.sg

Cheers...
Hope to hear from you soon!!!

Hi there,

I'm not interested in pottery but I could make use of my lousy photography skills there. Can I still join?

I believe I can do a photo story there and educate the people here in Singapore how lucky they are.

hello chyeo... :)
Nice to meet you...

Sure you can!!! well to give you more info...
Project Clay is set to be a two year project.
Basically the expedition is to build a pottery kiln and a workshop (house) of dimension 10m x 30m x ~6m...

And over one weekend, we'll be heading to visit an old monk's collection of pottery. And this is where I really need some help - we would like to give the potteries collected new labels and to begin documentation via means of photography (digital/positive)...

And one of the weekends, we're hoping to organize a community interaction day whereby we'll play some games with the locals :D

And since this expedition is the first of it's kind... I would really like it to be documented too... moreover, we'll be staying among the villagers, sleeping i a traditional Cambodian house (once in a life time man... :cool: ) and in between two temples!!!! :what:

if you are keen in taking this worthwhile and exciting adventure... pls do email me and I can send you the application form... :D (cos I still dono how to insert file into this forum... :p )

Email: pawziiclay@yahoo.com
Cheers!!!

Pawzii :)

Just email-ed you... :)

currently the Expedition dates are set to be from 1st to 18th December 2003... (peak season over at Cambodia)

We'll have to do some Fund Raising ourselves before we head over to Cambodia... Though we're supported by Singapore International Foundation (SIF)...

Cos we're not from any Organisation... We welcome anyone who are keen to join us :)

While we're in Singapore, we'll need handle some stuff as well... mainly fund-raising, Designing of Expedition & our Cambodia Host's Trademark and a marketing survey sheet to be used in Cambodia to assist our host in marketing the handicrafts made...

I can help out in anything in Singapore but I can't make it for the expedition to Cambodia.
Guys, don't worry about the costs as it'll not be high, few hundred bucks i reckon. pawzii, PM me if you need any help, I can help you upload the forms etc to my website and available for downloading, as for others matters concerning the preparation etc, anything you need help, let me know too, I try my best.

Cheers

OT here, I feel that those who are interested, pls find out the details and consider it carefully and seriously, it's very disruptive, disturbing and problematic if you are going to pull out after you are selected into the project.
My tiny 2 cents :)
