Threads : Cultural Conversations

Support Us

Sponsorship Options

Threads is an online platform for cultural education and personal development through building on shared experiences, listening to one another, and rethinking assumptions. Speakers from all walks of life share their stories in online knowledge talks, accompanied by performances, poetry, art, philosophy, and a lot more. Participants will experience the world’s diversity through the eyes of others.

We are creating a means for diverse cultures to hear each other’s stories and experiences, while cultivating new ‘shared experiences’ that foster cross-cultural awareness.
