We made it! What better time to reflect and give thanks to the end of this dastardly year than to look back at some of our favourite projects — and moments — of 2020.
Taylor Swift isn’t the only one being productive during this pandemic.
We did some of our best works this year here at Konti, even though the pandemic threw a wrench into a lot of our plans, with conferences, talks, and other gigs cancelled without any clear date on when they’ll resume.
But on to the good stuff—let’s take a look at some of our favourite projects!
Becoming AWARE: 35 years of women’s activism
By Peiying (company head and editor-in-chief):
As the head of the company, it’s quite difficult for me to pick a favourite. Among the top pieces are our collaboration with BirdLife International and UNHCR. But if I had to choose, it would be Becoming AWARE. Working on this collaboration allowed me to use some of the historical research skills that I had picked up in university. It also expanded our team’s skillset in experimenting with static data visualisation and thinking beyond our usual formats and mediums. I was also incredibly proud to be part of a team that came together very quickly to work on the story in a short amount of time. Most important, it allowed me to feel like I’m part of something larger — supporting and celebrating women’s advocacy in Singapore.
Editor’s note: Please check out Saga, a 12-part limited-series podcast on the 2009 AWARE Saga, in which a group of religious conservatives staged a coup to take over the executive committee—on the false grounds of the committee’s promoting homosexuality. You can listen to it on popular podcast apps, including Spotify, and Apple.
