Spark the Next Youth Hangout

20 November 2019 - 08 December 2019 , 12 PM – 8 PM

At Spark the Next: Youth Hangout, youths had the chance to explore the five values of sustainability, inclusiveness, care, progress and fairness.

The pop-up roadshow roved across three different locations in Singapore, namely Jurong Point (20 to 24 Nov), Plaza Singapura (27 Nov to 1 Dec) and Our Tampines Hub (4 to 8 Dec).

There were 3 interactive installations:

  • Room For Change  
    An open-concept living space with interactive panels, the Room For Change installation focused on the value of sustainability. Youths received interesting bite-sized tips on how to lead an eco-conscious life and reduce electronic waste, fashion waste and plastic waste.
  • The Invisible Gallery
    The Invisible Gallery installation raised awareness of unseen struggles of people around us. The canvases revealed heartfelt stories of five people, who shared about their struggles and journey of overcoming them.
  • Youths-Like-Us
    The Youths-Like-Us installation featured life-sized statues of well-known Singaporeans in their younger days, who overcame their obstacles to achieve success in their own fields. These personalities include artiste Michelle Chong, football coach Fandi Ahmad, chef Lennard Yeong and actress Eswari Gunasagar. The installation encouraged youths to pursue their own definitions of success and persevere through challenging times. 

We also held a Youths-Like-Us social media contest, where youths had the chance to win exclusive workshops in acting, cooking, content creation and football. Check out the workshop feature videos!
