In today’s multi-ethnic cities, where media consumption habits are constantly evolving and the range of communication platforms expanding, it has become even more challenging for communication programmes to achieve their desired outcomes. One of the issues appears to be perceptions of appropriate ethnic representations, irrespective of the medium. Storytelling is an integral part of public relations and narrative persuasion is often used in communication campaigns. Narratives can sometimes validate existing stereotypes about an ethnicity, some of which might not be positive. This reinforcement of negative perceptions about their culture might result in the audiences’ dissociation with the narrative, resulting in poor perceptions of the communication in traditional media and criticism on new media.
