Postcards from the South

ILHAM CONVERSATIONS: POSTCARDS FROM THE SOUTH
Documenting the history of the Malaysian railways and its fleeting memories

DATE: 9 SEPTEMBER 2017
TIME: 3.00PM

The story of the railways is the story of Malaysia. It is the steel thread that binds all of our unique histories and cultures together.

Projek Keretapi Kita celebrates our living heritage by documenting it. Through pictures, videos, and interviews, the project gives voice to the railways, the people, and the places they call home. It also raises questions on sustainability; How do we strike a balance between preserving heritage, and promoting much-needed development in bridging the economic gap between urban and rural areas?

Mahen Bala will be presenting stories from the project, the value of documenting oral history, and what lies ahead for Projek Keretapi Kita.
