Conversations: Everyone has a story to tell in conjunction with the exhibition “Faith, Beauty, Love & Hope” at Asian Civilisations Museum on 19th February 2021 featured Aravinth Kumarasamy in a panel of story tellers. Each had to tell their interpretation of stories based on an artefact featured in this exhibition. Aravinth spoke about two distinct Buddha statues from Myanmar & Cambodia and how the stories of the Buddha and the way his teachings have travelled and imbibed by other communities which inspired the concept behind “Anjasa” – a production by Apsaras Arts that follows significant Buddhist monuments around Asia.
