News – Drama tackles integration topics

Drama organisations such as Act 3 have been roped in, as well as Integration and Naturalisation Champions (in numbers exceeding 400 from major ethnic groups) for the effort. The aim? It is to increase integration of incoming citizens since the basic foundation of ‘tolerance’ has largely been achieved. The sub targets are to build ’empathy’ and ‘patience’.

The format is theatre; using English. Audience and actors come together and discuss through the story how new citizens can blend in…

Well, that is one utility of art…
