Open mic, open minds
Updated: Aug 2, 2020
In 2019, Open Mic was introduced into the FPVI Program with the view to developing the students’ confidence in their individual capabilities to speak in front of their peers. After three rounds of these individual sessions, usually followed by Q&A, students were ready for a more challenging version of Open Mic.
In January 2020, the Team Open Mic was introduced where each team is tasked to choose a famous personality (local or international) whose life and work they have to present in any format of their choice - an open invitation to further their creative potential. The point is to spur them to learn to do research, understand the materials they gather, and work as a team.
