Crossroads. You. Terrorist

Mr Jeffrey Tan
(Singapore)

Context of Discussion: Secondary School & Up (Ages 13 and up)

Terrorism is a reality in today's world. This process drama workshop facilitated by theatre director Jeffrey Tan is based on characters and scenes from his original play. Four friends plan their graduation trip. However, with the rise of terrorism, how will these youths cope with the situation.   

The workshop will raise these questions: What is the role of social media in self-radicalisation? What can young people do to stave off the influence of online and should young people care about such issues? Participants will get to know the characters through the drama and begin to unpack the relationship between social media and radicalisation.
