Joker Exchange Online – Meeting The Risks and Opportunities of the COVID-19 Crisis

Uri Yitzchak Noy Meir, Anne Larcher

Abstract

In this article, we narrate and analyse patterns of engagement and harvest key learning from the Joker Exchange Online (JEO) events on 11th April and May 2nd. We map the impact of these online events to inform future events as an effective collective response/strategy to global challenges. At the same time, we are Theatre of the Oppressed practitioners who attended/presented in the JEO, and this informs our research and engaged interest in theatre and community work on the margins of theatre, activism, and social change. The article has three parts: the first part look at the “triggers” for the Joker Exchange Online and its aims; the second part reports and analyses testimonies from JEO participants; the third part outlines key learnings, suggestions, and considerations for similar future global online events.
