What is a Narrative of Love?
This period of lingering perplexity is further exasperated by global crises, in particular, the ongoing humanitarian crisis, the continued refugee crisis, the ever-present climate crisis, and most recently the Covid-19 pandemic. These crises have laid bare continued structural dehumanisation and systemic instrumentalisation that have prevailed in our global socio-economic and political institutions.
Although this is a most challenging time for humanity, nevertheless, it has provided an important opportunity for us to pause, reflect, and take responsibility. Hence humanity is also on collective search for a new narrative that may take us out of the present perplexity and crises. This is because narrative, like cultural mythos, is fundamental to our common ways of being, and can articulate what we should value, what ought to constitute the good life, and how we can flourish together.
This Project believes that it is A Narrative of Love that has the true potential to take us out of our present impasse towards the good life for all.
