  • Description


    Our project was founded in 2010 with the intention of diversifying the local artistic landscape and since then has evolved and expanded considerably into an art social space that facilitates an enormous range of projects and performances. We are an entirely independent, artist run space which collaborates with local and international artists/musician/creatives to curate and host events, exhibitions and workshops for the Malaysian public.

    The extent to which you can learn from us and contribute is left open; decided by your existing skill sets, interests and ideas. There is a basic amount of upkeep, maintenance and customer service we ask of you but above and beyond that it is up to you. There will be plentiful opportunity to be involved in the setup and curation of exhibitions and events during which we can teach you the associated skills.

    If you have concepts or ideas; skills or talents which you can share with us or use to create or create your own events or workshops we are more than happy to help work with you and facilitate. Examples of which could be; painting, canvas making and stretching, live drawing, writing, dj mixing, graffiti, music production, screen printing, web design, social media, photography, videography, cocktail making etc etc.

    To summarise; if you are a creative, would like to be a creative, or just imagine fitting in well alongside other creatives; im sure there is a place for you within our collective.
