Standard Chartered Youth Creative Industry Employment Scheme – “Unplugged” Performance for Schools
Easy internet connections and cheap smartphones make access to information easier than at any time in the past. But this convenience comes at a price. According to a 2020 survey, students aged 7 to 17 spent more than 3.5 hours on their phones during weekends. It is believed that internet addiction among students is an increasing concern.
Our lively physical theatre production “Unplugged” is designed to help senior primary school students learn how to navigate the online world – how to be mindful of people they meet online, how to stay cybersafe and how to recognise and address fake information. Educating students through entertainment, the 20-minute performance tours schools in March and April 2022 free of charge. Participating schools may also choose to join post-performance workshops offering great opportunities for sharing and discussion.
