R(EVOL)T: an interactive social playground
Breaking the stereotype of merely advocating and talking about charity, Love in Revolt aims to use art, creativity and engaging activities to create awareness about the plight of the poor in Singapore and the surrounding countries among Singapore youths. The event itself is designed to be a platform for social cohesion, learning and civic engagement.
“Today, Singapore has indeed become an example in nation-building for others in the region,” Harris Gozali, chairman of the event, comments. “Unlike so many people in neighbouring countries, our greatest challenge now is keeping our soul alive in an environment of comfort and affluence. As our affluence grows, we must not forget the less fortunate that exist all around us. We must use the much we have to make a difference in the lives of others,” he adds.
The exhibition will feature exclusive works created by graduates of La Salle School of the Arts and Raffles Design Institute, all of which aim to express their combined stance against poverty.
Love in Revolt is supported by ONE Singapore, A Child’s Right, Hope International, World Harvest and Rotary Club. Attendees will be able to participate in hands-on activities: ones that engage their senses of sight, sound and touch—in sync with the efforts of the 5 selected beneficiaries to alleviate poverty through sustainable projects such as providing education, access to clean water and microfinance in selected countries: Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore.
