What does poverty look like Singapore? Does poverty exist here? What can we do about it?

We are fundraising for a workshop that is open only to disadvantaged youths from Voluntary Welfare Organisations as part of M1 Peer Pleasure Youth Theatre Festival 2018. The workshop "Imagining Change: Exploring Poverty Through Drama" will be facilitated by theatre veterans Kok Heng Leun and Li Xie, who both have vast experiences of working with communities from different backgrounds.

This interactive workshop explores the relationship between poverty, inequality and dignity. Through the sharing of stories and drama games, youths will unpack and understand the forces behind inequality, how it dehumanises and discover ways to restore human dignity. They will also be equipped with skills to develop self reflexivity and an active outlook in dealing with problems in their lives.

We wish to provide free admission to the youth participants with your monetary support, where all proceeds will go towards sponsoring their participation.

In return, these youths will be gifted with the opportunity to experience a drama workshop on an issue of concern to them. Besides having a meaningful time, they also get to make new friends and gain confidence in their own ability to express themselves. As well, the workshop could potentially inspire and encourage them to work towards a goal or dream.

Size of workshop: 24 pax
Each ticket is priced at $50.00.
