Calling Male Volunteers for Forum Theatre!

AWARE is collaborating with Drama Box to produce its very own forum theatre on violence against women in Singapore, and the NGO is on the lookout for men and boys to join their team of actors, directors, scriptwriters, content contributors and production team for this play!

“Through this interactive drama, we hope to provoke thought and discussion on the less obvious forms of violence against women. Violence isn’t always black and blue – psychological and sexual violence can be just as damaging, if not more.”

The selected volunteers will undergo an intensive Forum Theatre Workshop in April 2013, with Li Xie from Drama Box, and produce this play from scratch.

The play will be a cornerstone of We Can! – AWARE’s national campaign to end violence against women.  Between June 2013 and Dec 2014, the team will embark on a Forum Theatre Tour, taking the play to communities around Singapore, inviting people to become ‘Change Makers’ – individuals who commit to taking steps in their own lives to end violence.

“If you are passionate about gender equality and believe in theatre as a medium of social change, we want YOU to be a part of this exciting project! This call goes out to all men and boys who believe that women have the right to live lives free of violence. So what are you waiting for? Join the global movement to end violence against women.” – Aware

Fill out this application form from AWARE by 5th April 2013 if you’d like to be a part of the forum theatre project from the NGO, and they’ll be in touch with you shortly.

已探讨落实因素、替代方案 马国今年料废除煽动法

马来西亚政府预料在今年废除饱受当地维权组织挞伐的《1948年煽动法令》。 掌管法律事务的马国首相署部长拿督刘伟强在上周五出席希望联盟执政一周年,接受媒体访问时,如是指出。 他说,政府已经在内阁会议中议决,于今年内废除该法令,目前已经探讨需要加以落实的数项因素,并且取代该法令的新方式。 他指出,基于有关法令隶属内政部的管辖范围,所以也有该部门负责废除和设立替代方案的事项。 因此,他将会和其他的首相署部长,即掌管国民团结和社会和谐事务的华达慕迪、掌管宗教事务的拿督斯里姆加希博士,和通讯及多媒体部长哥宾星一起探讨新方案。 他指出,拟定新方案的内容,也包括了可能将诽谤或侮辱王室和政府领导人的公共秩序者,纳入刑事法典处理等。但是,他补充说,会确保国人继续享有言论自由。 “我们要确保,并不一定是所有的言论并不一定是所有的言论都构成煽动,因为我们要确保特定的言论可享有一些的自由……但我们不是在允许所有人恣意的诽谤我们的君主和领袖。” 他也表示,希盟政府其实不介意人民批评,因为对政府提出具建设性的批评是好事,让政府可以以此前进和发展。 刘伟强随后表示,政府也正在探讨推出反缠扰的相关法律,因为他们发现类似行为已经逐渐形成一种趋势。 他还补充道,政府已经成立检讨1963年马来西亚协议的特别内各委员会,并将于下个月和7月提出完整报告。
