Crafting Futures: Southeast Asia Craft Forum by the British Council in collaboration with Institut Kraf Negara was a one day event that will bring impact for many years to come for the industry of craftsmanship.
Before the Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival (YSDAF) 2018 is set to open this 18th-19th August, the folks at both YSD and KLPAC have been working hard to ensure that the festival does more in terms of giving back to its community. This means not just limiting their works to the installations and activities that will be featured during the festival itself but creating events to encourage the spirit of innovation and love of the arts for months on end.
Art is not measured by the greatness of the individual. It’s easy enough to look at someone you admire and wish you were as bright or creative or incredible as them, without realising we are capable of that same strange power. All of us from all walks of life, are good enough to create something meaningful from our weirdest and innermost places. If we’re lucky, sometimes we are healed in the process.
This is the message of 2018’s highly anticipated Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival (YSDAF), “You, Me + The Arts”.
