Dhaka Tales 2021

Everyone has a story to tell. No matter who you are or where you’re from.

Stories of history, dreams and hopes for the future.

Not everyone’s story is heard. Not everyone gets a chance to share their story of history, dreams and hopes for the future. When stories are not shared, the history will be forgotten and dreams and hopes might extinguish.

Dhaka Tales is a new unique contest for young people between the ages of 12-21 who are excluded from mainstream opportunities, to show their talents and share their stories through writing, painting and photography.

The young generation is considered the future of Bangladesh and yet has no proper access to attend a high school, study at a university, visit a concert or an art exhibition.
