@aaronli: Hi Steemians, I am grateful to be the first guest host of a @sndbox challenge! This challenge is all about cultural storytelling. A culture is full of stories. Every town, city and nation has treasured narratives about the people and places within it. Culture is the glue that helps to create the communities that we are all a part of. So, Steemians, would you like to introduce your community to us? What about your city? This challenge is a great place to start!
The #aboutmyculture challenge is meant to encourage all Steemians to learn more about one another through the blockchain we are all connected to. With this challenge, I encourage you to share a story from home. @sndbox will sponsor this challenge and all upvote prizes.
Challenge Topics & Example Ideas
Participants are encouraged to choose a single topic and share the story behind it. The topic must be related to your local culture. This “topic” could be a festival, local custom, unique food, local art, architecture, or something in nature.
Bamboo scaffolding in my hometown; Hong Kong. Focusing on bamboo, I would share the story of the art, history, technique and how it is a signature of my community. Here’s a great example from @prch who is introducing this unique construction style: https://steemit.com/cn/@prch/bamboo-scaffolding-in-hong-kong-construction
