objective

Highlight the unpredictable nature of life's challenges and demonstrate the protective value of various insurance covers through an interactive, high-energy dodgeball arena.

synopsis

The arena is split into two distinct zones: 'Life's Curveballs' and the 'Individual's Ground'. Players entering the arena must face a barrage of dodgeballs, symbolizing life's unexpected hurdles like illness, accidents, and other emergencies. Their preparedness is represented by the protection (teammates) they bring into the arena based on the insurance covers they possess.

setup

Life's Curveballs Zone:

Hosts 5 throwers equipped with an unlimited arsenal of dodgeballs, continually hurling them at the participant in the opposing zone.


Individual's Ground:

This is where participants stand and experience the onslaught of balls, symbolic of life's unpredicted challenges.

 

Prior to entering, participants must state if they have any insurance cover and, if so, the type(s).

experience dynamics

Insured Scenario:

Participants choose their "defensive teammates" based on the type of insurance covers they have:


Medical Aid = One defender

Gap Cover = Another defender

Day to Day = A third defender

Accident Cover = A fourth defender

 

Each defender represents a layer of protection, assisting the participant by deflecting balls and, in essence, mitigating life's challenges.


Uninsured Scenario:

If a participant declares they have no insurance, they enter the arena alone, attempting to dodge life's curveballs without any support.


Gameplay:

The game lasts for a designated time 30 seconds

 

Participants try to dodge as many balls as they can. Those with defenders will find the challenge easier as they have layers of protection.

 

The game serves as a metaphor:

The more insurance covers (defenders) one has, the better they are protected against unforeseen life events.

key messages to communicate

Life is Unpredictable: Just like the unending onslaught of dodgeballs, life can throw unexpected challenges our way at any time.

 

The Power of Preparedness: Being insured is akin to having a team that helps shield you from life's curveballs.

 

The Vulnerability of Going It Alone: Without insurance, one is left to fend for themselves, increasing the odds of being "hit" by life's unpredictables.

post-game engagement

Reflection Booth: After the game, participants can share their experiences and feelings during the game, drawing parallels to real-life situations.

Social Media Push: Encourage participants to share their 'Dodge Life's Curveballs' experience using a specific hashtag, fostering wider community engagement.

outcome

Through this immersive and memorable activation, participants will gain a deeper appreciation for the value of insurance. The tangible experience of facing (and sometimes getting hit by) life's curveballs will emphasize the crucial role of insurance in offering protection and peace of mind.
