ZoCards supports the Arts!

ZoCards are everywhere. While I’ve gotten used to the commercial advertising material on most of them and occasionally still pick up the ones with the pretty graphics, I do rely on these free cards incidentally for information- information on events, and essentially what’s happening in town. Spotted these little ‘gems’ recently and was quite happy to see that they were about 2 running programmes on arts central and recent/ upcoming arts events- nothing too expensive and possibly, free. It was also encouraging to see that mediacorp is advertising its programmes on arts central, since probably, most people would not know that arts central is actually showing quite a good load of programmes unless they are geeks like me who would religiously flip life! for the listings, specifically, that of arts central.

Here for the month of May, are 5 of my favourite postcards about 5 specific events/ tv programmes not to be missed! Leaving the last slot empty since it’s a good 14 odd days before the end of May!
Do give these free cards a browse when you see them!

Engraving the World
The Chalcography of the Lourve Museum
04 May to 22 July 2007 @SAM
Discover the techniques of etching on copper plates as a form of print duplication.

Singapore Arts Festival 2007
Get hold of that ‘Eden’ postcard, answer a simple question and you could be on your way to a 3-night stay at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit in Bangkok! The cards entitle the holder to a 10% off ticket purchases as well. (getting a lil’ too perky here) And of course, the free opening night performance at the Padang.

Do Not Disturb on Arts Central
Unprecedented local drama series directed by Kelvin Tong which explores the complex modern relationships between men and women. The mini ‘arthouse’ series is shot entirely within the confines of a budget hotel room. Regretfully, I only manage to catch one episode and the series is ending its run with a last episode this coming monday! That one episode was an enjoyable watch though.

Planet Earth on Arts Central
The BBC blockbuster documentary. Beautiful, must-watch 11 part series!
This particular postcard is also my favourite of the lot. =)
