Myths are as old as human civilisation. They inform, obfuscate and empower our most deep seated beliefs. This edition of Stories That Matter unpacks the role mythic tradition continues to play in our lives, through national, political and cultural narratives that shape our perception of the world.
Stories That Matter is an annual programme presented by Objectifs that looks at critical issues and trends in non-fiction visual storytelling.
