An art-based approach can be an alternative to voice out social issues, youth issues and any other activism because art has creative power to move us emotionally. It can help us to stimulate empathy, a necessary factor to achieve social solidarity. Youth will examine the use of visual arts, as a tool for understanding how societies process, critically reflect upon, and advocate for human rights issues directly impacting them.

November 22nd, 2020

Resource person: Dhyta Caturani (Indonesia, Feminist Activist)

It is significant to address emerging issues in the vast moving technology-based development era, one of which is digital security. The narrative “youth are digital natives” doesn’t address the diversity of youth sub-population and it does ignore the fact that youth are still unaware of how they can be targeted for cyber security issues. It is also important to capacitate youth with digital security knowledge and skills through workshops / training.
