About the Project
Stories are the embodiment of our unique experiences and journeys, and are our primary way of remembering the past. Represent provides a platform for the sharing of stories of all types, including myths, poems, songs, and local folk tales, in multiple dialects. These stories can tell us about our shared culture and history as well as ideas that we can carry forward into our collective future.
- How did this project start?
What are the rights of storytellers?
Narrators are listed by name on their respective stories. They retain all rights to their stories, including in their spoken, transcripted and translated forms. All narrators have given their oral consent for recording and publishing their stories. The artwork and photos used with the stories are either our own or paid commissioned work.
What is the long term vision?
Our goal is to build a multi-lingual, multi-media cultural atlas of stories, including myths, poems, songs, local folk tales and histories - that can be freely shared and accessed,while respecting the rights and identity of content producers. We work with individuals and groups to identify storytellers, collect stories, and to distribute content and resources back to them and their communities.
How can I get involved?
