About Project Eyam

Project Eyam is trying to engage people with oral history of people of Tamilnadu and through the insights of both old and young to question the mainstream perceptions and explore how this could help bring a deeper understanding about our society’s past and present.

Project eyam will record stories of both young and old engaged in working and creating an alternative narrative in today’s Tamil society. these stories can provide new information, alternative explanations and different insights which are potentially of enormous value.

Project eyam will record, preserve and do interpretation of historical information based on the personal experiences and opinions of the speaker. It may take the form of eye-witness evidence about the past, but can include folklore, myths, songs and stories passed down over the years by word of mouth.
