Nov 16, 2019: The Rogue Festival was a call for youth to pick up arms towards conscious service which demonstrates the power of the people, the possibilities of creativity and social enterprise towards reimagining environment and empowering communities. It was organised in collaboration with Eats Shoots & Roots, funded by the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development, and was part of Urbanscapes 2019.
The festival was also a showcase of the social enterprise efforts at the YWCA KL and various other projects including an entrepreneurship program for the underprivileged students of our Vocational Training Opportunity Center via a Cottage Industry & Upcycle-themed Bazaar, range of workshops, live demo sessions, fashion parade, craft jams and much more. Farm-To-Table Lunch and High Tea sessions were organised by Eats Shoots and Roots via an Urban Farm Cook-Off featuring ingredients derived from our Urban Farm.
A culmination of a creative campaign for volunteerism and social work, a campaign music video "Greater: Rogue Nation Rising" was filmed featuring Juwita Suwito & Friends while hair, makeup and costumes were done by VTOC students and graduates. There were also Creative Makeover Studios, a Pop-Up Salon, Fashion Costume House and Instagram Booths which members of the public could partake in.
