About this event

Stories can be found in every culture and are often used as a tool to communicate. They are versatile and powerful, taking on different meanings depending on the storyteller’s intention and the context in which they are told. 

This talk will discuss the impact of storytelling and how it can be used for different purposes, from personal recounts, to professional branding, and even teaching and entertainment. Pick up tips on how to deliver your intended message more effectively through the stories you tell. 

This programme is organised in collaboration with The Society for Reading and Literacy (SRL).

TOYL x Arts Exchange is an arts appreciation programme series for those aged 50 and above. Widen your perspective on arts and culture through the talks and immerse yourself in the different art forms.

Connections: Past, Present and Future

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being.

Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
