Oral storytelling traditions have never lost their grip on us. Whether it’s family history being passed on, breathing life into cultural wisdom, or for pure entertainment, there’s an intimacy and honor in being a listener, and masterful skill in sharing the story. Our panel reveals the effect oral storytelling has had on their creative lives.

Tradisi mendongeng secara lisan tidak pernah kehilangan pegangannya pada manusia. Baik itu sebagai sejarah keluarga yang diwariskan, untuk menghembuskan kehidupan ke dalam kearifan budaya, atau untuk hiburan semata, ada keintiman dan kehormatan tersendiri sebagai seorang pendengar, dan keterampilan yang mumpuni dalam berbagi cerita. Panelis kami mengungkap dampak mendongeng secara lisan pada kehidupan kreatif mereka.
