In times of a pandemic and social injustice, how can online content-writing, journalism and photography convey messages in more empathetic and inclusive ways? In this conversation, aspiring young writers and online content creators will share insights on how to talk about the triumphs and challenges through the art of listening and understanding multiple perspectives.
This is a pre-recorded session, and will be available on video-on-demand replay.
This session was conceptualised by the SWF 2020 Youth Curators, and is co-presented with the Singapore Book Council.
