AHA MEDIA and Fearless City Mobile films people’s thoughts of Story Box projects at W2 Storyeum in Vancouver Downtown Eastside

At the heart of the City’s Great Beginnings Initiative is the desire to go back to its roots and give each of the founding neighborhoods something to talk about. In one such community, the DTES Story Box Project highlights its rich and storied cultural diversity through oral and written tradition. Unique object/artifact boxes illustrate stories from various voices which are intermingled to create a new and visceral experience.

The Storybox Project at the Surge Festival is the sensational finish to a process that involved over eighty members of DTES community based writing groups who developed their individual stories utilizing personal artifacts as inspiration and illustration. The manifold stories held common threads bound to universal themes. StoryBox at Storyeum presents five such themes as representative of the powerfully spoken words by the most demo-diverse voices working in concert with some of Vancouver’s brightest lights in media arts.

“The Tiger is one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet, and is feared and revered in equal measure. It features in many Asian cultures as a manifestation of courage, power, passion and royalty. The Tiger symbolizes the female Yin energy as opposed to the Yang male energy of the dragon. Ancient Chinese believe that the markings on the forehead of tigers resemble the Chinese character for “Wang”, or King. In Imperial China, where the dragon is the insignia of the emperors, the tiger is the military emblem of the highest supreme commanders of the army symbolizing fearlessness and victory. The Tiger also represents earth, while the dragon represents Heaven. The powerful and stealth prowess of the Tiger inspire the martial art movements of many Kung-Fu masters.”

Those who are skilled in combat
do not become angered.

Those who are skilled at winning
do not become afraid.

Thus, the wise win before they fight
while the ignorant fight to win.

Sun Tzu, “The Art of War
