Following five months of research, this public summary examines the best opportunities, partnerships and approaches that could connect Malaysia and the UK through cultural practices in arts and creative technology.
This report was commissioned to focus on the best opportunities, partnerships and approaches that could connect Malaysia and the UK through cultural practices in arts and creative technology. The final report combines knowledge gained from desk research, qualitative interviews, and an in-person research visit to Kuala Lumpur in February 2023 to build a narrative analysis of the context for art and creative technology, and define a number of areas for development, exploration and further enquiry for arts and creative technology in Malaysia.
Over 50 arts organisations and creative entrepreneurs were spoken to in Malaysia, neighbouring Singapore, with a primary geographic focus in Malaysia has been Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley, with a secondary focus of Penang.
This public summary has been compiled to share some of the key findings of this report for a UK audience interested in engaging with Malaysia in arts and digital practice.
