OUTSIDE Multimedia Workshop: Storytelling With The Homeless
This multimedia workshop is focused on using photography and video, and adopts a different perspective by inviting soup kitchen volunteers, artists and young filmmakers to converse with the homeless people. They collaborate to produce short multimedia narratives and shine a different light on the the personal sharing of experiences and stories of homeless people.
The workshop participants will be guided by award-winning filmmaker Lau Kek Huat and social educationist, Joycelyn Lee.
The OUTSIDE Multimedia Workshop is organised in collaboration with Pit Stop Community Cafe.
