Call To ActionCall To Action is the first online and cross-cultural edition of the Living Newspaper, that engaged young people from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Scotland. It aimed to reimagine a new world post-pandemic through applied theatre techniques and digital mediums.
The project was led by SIF Arts for Good Fellows Clara Bloomfield (Scotland) of Collision Theatre, Shaza IshAak, Khairina Khalid and Rizman Putra (Singapore) of Teater Ekamatra. They gathered youths from Scotland and Singapore and created digital editions of The Living Newspaper focusing on their own realities. The first two editions explored ‘the power-laden relationships’ between self and society within their countries. Through reflection and deliberation, participants critically considered the lived experiences through their stories, and what they wanted to leave their viewers with through their digital living newspapers, as their Call To Action.
