Dark Tales 3 - Urban Legends
“Dark Tales 3 is the third series of the National Library Board (NLB) annual Halloween programme. Moving away from the traditional stereotype of having nothing to offer but books, the only spine-chilling library trail in Singapore aims to attract youths to the library and promote it as a fun and exciting place. Held on 31st October 2014 at the Central Public Library (CPL), the 3-hour event welcomed more than 600 visitors from the public. The event comprises of a photo booth for entertainment while queuing and a 5-minute walk through in the library that would guarantee a scream.
A group of students from the Diploma in Integrated Events & Project Management, took part in providing a unique and refreshing concept through design thinking and planning the content of the event in details. In addition, they were tasked to contact and negotiate with service vendors for the best deal and handle the procurement processes. After the content was finalized, the students marketed the event to the general public, especially towards the youths as well as conducted auditions and hired scare actors for the event. Lastly, they were in charge of running the entire event while ensuring the safety of the personnel and the security of the library’s property.
