TED Talk x Dialogue: What is your story?

“Who are we but the stories we tell ourselves, about ourselves, and believe in them?”

We as human beings are storytellers. We create narratives that enable us to move into and through the moments of life. The ideas and thoughts that we self-create and forge into visual imaginations can be both uplifting and entertaining to people around us.

In this TED talk, visionary filmmaker Shekhar Kapur said, “The stories we tell ourselves are the stories that define the potentialities of our existence.”

Join us in this TED Talk x Dialogue session as we watch and discuss different angles of storytelling, craft our own story and explore what our approach says about us!
