What is the impact of storytelling on fringe communities? At RICE Media’s panel discussion, its content creators dive into the humane craft of human interest stories and empathetic journalism.
As they share their past experiences, they’ll unpack how compelling narratives can amplify marginalised voices while bridging the gap between mainstream society and those defined by the periphery.
The panel includes RICE Media’s Kimberly Lim (Associate Editor), Yulianna Frederika (Social Media Manager), Eudea Tan (Video Producer), and Hykel Quek (Writer). The panel discussion is moderated by RICE Media’s Editor-in-Chief, Ilyas Sholihyn.
This conversation is held in conjunction with the Ethos Books Festive Market. If you have any questions, feel free to message us on Instagram, Facebook or to email us at [email protected]
