Timeless Tales

Step into a world of fact or fiction from 14 August 2020

Overview

Life is full of stories. Or maybe life is only stories ~ Ruth Ozeki

Before stories were written, they were spoken and performed. Our ancestors gathered around the fire to listen, watch and share the stories of their daily struggles and nightly dreams for millennia. Stories are a means of passing on knowledge from one compatriot to another, a generation to the next. Knowing our origins and our cultural background can help us develop and establish our core identity, giving us a strong sense of who we are. Today, we may not feel as connected by the stories and legends of our ancestors. However, the ancient art remains. This Storytelling Project hopes to reconnect people to our ancestors from ages past through the art of storytelling. Speakers will be invited to share their journeys and stories through our online platform in line with a common monthly theme. Let us step into the world of story.

Themes

  1. Domestic Abuse
    In this theme, we are collaborating with the IMU drama club to present a series of videos that re-enact real-life stories shared by domestic abuse survivors. With this, we hope to raise public awareness on this serious social issue as well as bring strength and healing to the survivors. SHARE YOUR STORY HERE 

  2. Social Media (Cyber Bullying)
    Nowadays, social media has greatly integrated into our daily lives. It is a platform that connects people regardless of our distance. However, when there is good, there is always bad. In this theme, we will be having influencers to share their personal opinions regarding the benefits of utilizing the social media along with its downside.

  3. Business During Covid-19/ Entrepreneurship
    For this series, we are inviting Malaysian entrepreneurs to share on how they build and grow a business.  At the meantime, talk about their experiences in maintaining their business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
