Both Sides, Now : Mengukir Harapan is an arts-based community engagement project exploring what it means to live well, and leave well.
Death is a part of life, impending and certain. Unfortunately, not many of us are willing to talk about it openly. What are our wishes and hopes while our hearts are still beating? How do we prepare for our final exit without losing our dignity? Are people who are closest and dearest to us ready to accept our sometimes painful, final decisions? Death does not discriminate.
When the time comes, will those we leave behind be prepared to take the step forward and carve out a new hope?
This November, Both Sides, Now : Mengukir Harapan presents to you Kata-Kata Kita, a variety show on end-of-life conversations - suitable for all ages!
Hosted by popular personalities Hatta Said and Gloria Tan, the line-up includes Pantang, Radio Dukacita and Sukar (Melepaskan), a drama series that unfolds across 3 days. Audiences will be entertained while learning more about end-of-life topics, such as Advance Care Planning, Faraidh law, wills, grief and bereavement. We will round up each day with a live panel discussion with experts from different fields.
Accompanied by live song performances by Khairul Afwan.
