  • Presentation about openspace :
  • Open Space is a creative platform for students and citizens to explore, understand and initiate social change.
  • It is a forum where you can express opinions and ideas that interest you, read your poetry, screen your film, host a discussion group, or build a campaign.
  • OS is also the place to meet and interact with (online and in person) writers, filmmakers, artists, activists and changemakers intrepid enough to believe that we can build a more equitable, sustainable world.
  • Open Space organises programmes and processes that encourage citizens, especially young adults, to see society, ideas and politics from fresh perspectives.
  • We do this by providing an extensive library of films and books, conducting workshops, film screenings and talks, large comfortable cushions, WiFi and free coffee.
  • Our space is free and we are a bunch of sometimes serious, usually happy people always up for a cup of coffee and a good conversation.
  • Open Space uses the power of media, art, literature, film, theatre and pop culture to explore the ideas of identity, diversity, social justice and sustainable and equitable development.
  • We aim at creating awareness on these subjects using new and innovative ways.
  • We amplify our reach by working closely with other organizations to foster change, and so we welcome collaborations with youth groups, campus clubs, online communities, and campaigns.
