Who we are

#CubaDengarDulu is an initiative by youths, for youths to promote an empathetic approach to the freedoms of religion or belief and expression.

We focus on telling real life stories, sharing experiences, and offering diverse perspectives that are often ignored or dismissed in day-to-day discourse. In collaboration with ARTICLE 19 and Projek Dialog, we aim to produce and curate artistic content to instigate meaningful discussions.

Join #CubaDengarDulu on this journey to share and receive bold, vibrant, and enigmatic stories which reflect the colourful fabric of our community.



What is freedom of expression?

To quote French philosopher Rene Descartes, “I Think, Therefore I Am.” The very ability to think and believe is paramount to the human experience. As such, it is important for the rights of every person to hold opinions and beliefs without interference, and to express those ideas in any way, shape or form.

Freedom  of expression is a tenet of human rights, which comes with its responsibilities as outlined under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and Article 10 of the Malaysian Federal Constitution Freedom of expression guarantees free spirited discussions, opinions and debates. No person shall be silenced, or stopped, by any other individuals or institutions with different understandings. After all--what is to be human, than to think freely?
