One year ago, we documented community initiatives and discussed related structural challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic in Singapore. One year later, we are inviting the same guests back to talk about their work, how they are feeling, and what they think we have learnt or have yet to learn from the pandemic. Today, we have Abhishek Bajaj, who leads the volunteer-run initiative 6th Sense. He details the “muscle memory work” gained from the 2020 circuit-breaker, his work with the low-income and migrant-worker communities, and the endeavour to sustain an ecosystem of ground-ups and changemakers.

Together with his partners, Abhishek is conducting a poll on the creation of structures to nourish changemakers and enable them to go the distance.

We spoke to Abhishek in April 2020 on our very first episode. The feature photo is by Ng Shi Wen.
