A pantomime artist slash social activist, a theatre director assisting mothers to stage their own play, a visual artist helping people with schizophrenia, and an actor and illustrator remembering the May 1998 riots with the message: “We cannot heal what we will not face.” Calling all socially-conscious creators: this is art for impact’s sake.

Seorang seniman pantomim sekaligus pegiat sosial, seorang direktur teater yang telah membantu para ibu untuk mementaskan pertunjukkannya sendiri, seorang seniman visual yang membantu orang-orang dengan skizofrenia, dan seorang aktor sekaligus illustrator yang mengingat kerusuhan Mei 1998 dan berpesan: “Kita tidak bisa menyembuhkan hal-hal yang tidak kita hadapi”. Mengundang semua creator yang sadar sosial: ini adalah seni dari sebuah dampak besar.
