In a New Light is an international online performance collaboration between artists and children in Scotland, Bangladesh, and Singapore, who face barriers to access the arts. Under the guidance of SIF Arts for Good Fellow Fiona Ferguson, children and youth from each country worked together with three experienced artists — Gudrun Soley Sigurdardottir (Edinburgh, Scotland), Kamruzzaman Shadhin (Balia, Bangladesh), and Arts for Good Fellow Renee Chua (Singapore)—to explore their collective voices in the current ecological crisis. The group came together online and embarked on a variety of tasks that encouraged creativity, reflection and collaboration, culminating in a contemporary performance with original text, movement and song, centred around their responses to the crisis. The project was showcased at the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival in 2021 through a performance film.
