Our Stories-co-creating workshops
This project encourages participants to express and present their stories through poetic reflection and computer arts; creating a cultural awareness in the wider society. At workshops, short videos are used, personal items, cultural images, photos with haiku, shape poems, other writing exercises and computer arts are provided and created. Guest artists will be invited to join us for these artistic processes and share their experiences and expertise.
