Let’s #BreakTheTaboo with Pulse and Aura India

In a country that thrives on diversity and differences, many topics of conversation are whispered in hushed tones, swept under the carpet, and never see the light of day.

There are battles that we all face on a day to day basis from cyber bullying to mental health issues to street harassment, but because of the ‘forbidden’ nature of these topics of conversation, they’re often forced into the darker parts of society, masked in silence rather than vocalized of.

The internet may be slowly changing these perceptions and bringing to light rather pressing issues that form the foundation of a society but an online existence is too little for Understanding to survive.

Introducing Taboo 2019 organized by Pulse and Aura India, a day of sparking conversation and changing perceptions, to be held on the 26th of January 2019 at Trace Expert City, Colombo 10.

Aiming to break the barriers we have set for ourselves, and cross all boundaries in the name of inclusion, Taboo brings to the forefront topics that have been kept under wrap for far too long.

Ranging from gender-based violence to zero-waste menstruation to internalized misogyny, Taboo will address the unfathomable, the unspoken, and the “ugly truth”, all spear-headed by experts in each industry.

Throughout the day, the public can attend panel discussions, workshops and demonstrations centered on the following themes:

Taboo 2019 is an ideal event to broaden one’s horizonsand expand as a society, enriched with cultural and moral understanding.
