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

Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world. In Timeless Tales, we hope to create stronger bonds between humans by empathy whilst forging trust, and creating deeper connections.
