#Be the Change - Project 3: Seeking Young Writers and Spoken Word Artists

16/03/2019; 23/03/2019; 30/03/2019; 02/04/2019; 03/04/2019


For the last project in our #Be the Change series, we are thrilled to partner with Translate For Her (TheM), an organisation that provides online translation services to help make information accessible to ethnic minority women.

#Be the Change is a series of spoken word and dance public service announcement (PSA) films that address social issues impacting young people in Hong Kong. Each video features 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 and keen to take part in our third film. 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.
