#Be the Change - Seeking Young Writers and Spoken Word Artists

08/09/2018; 15/09/2018; 22/09/2018; 25/09/2018

There are many urgent social issues in Hong Kong that need to be brought to light. What better group to do this than the young people who make up our next generation of changemakers?

#Be the Change is a series of spoken word and dance public service announcement (PSA) films that address social issues that impact the youth in Hong Kong. Each video will feature spoken word text and choreography created and performed by the young people of this city.

We are now seeking young writers with an interest in spoken word (experience not necessary) who are passionate about making a difference to take part in our first video. Working with creative writing organisation and publisher Elephant Community Press, you will conduct field research to collaboratively create spoken word pieces that will be recorded in a professional recording studio. These recordings will form the soundtrack to choreography devised by a group of young dancers, and be used to create original, social issue-based PSA dance films.
