On 23 October 2018, the British Council will host the Crafting Futures: Southeast Asia Craft Forum at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur as part of its Crafting Futures programme. The forum will gather speakers from Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and the UK to open up conversations about the future of crafts in Malaysia and Southeast Asia.
Youth engagement is a key challenge to overcome in order to revitalise the craft sector in this region. The forum will serve as a platform for artisans, designers, craft organisations, design schools and policymakers to:
- share experiences
- share ideas
- create new networks
- advocate for the crafts in Southeast Asia
- engage with you who are in the craft sector
Date: 23 October 2018
Time: 9:00am – 5:00pm
Venue: Education Centre, Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia
Admission is free. RSVP by 18 October at https://goo.gl/forms/7NpibyN1g7IUegsd2.
