My Story is a new project launched by Faith Matters, which brings forward the untold stories of faith and spirituality within local, national, and international contexts. If the stories are separated by distance, they are bound by a unifying aim: to promote change and to promote tolerance and understanding in their communities, and in communities abroad.
Through My Story, Faith Matters hopes to empower young activists and bring their unique voices forward and support them in reaching a wider audience.
In this project, we would like to offer our audience a close-up experience of personal stories, encouraging listening and opportunities to reflect on the experiences of others. The main aim of My Story is to challenge those who seek to divide communities by offering a different story, an individual, personal, and honest story.
Participants explain, in their own words and images, how their faith is not a passive act, but an act that is both deeply personal and a way of being.
