Hornbill and Elephant Creative Residency 2017

16 to 22nd October 2017

Our first ever activity: a 7-day residency programme for creatives from Sarawak and Sabah. Held in HAUS KCH, in Sarawak, in collaboration with Catama Borneo.

Residency included city and museum tours, and creative programming at HAUS KCH, a creative community hub. The programme featured daily talks by researchers, and anthropologists, with invited guests of Friends of Sarawak Musueum, with the intention to create a space in which creatives learn about Borneo cultural heritage and folklore, and respond through their work

Speakers included Louise Macul, Valerie Mashman, Ferrah Fusfita, Eleanor Goroh, Adrian Jo Milang, Jayl Langub, Catriona Mddocks, Raine Melissa Riman, Monica Janowski, Alvin Danker, Vernon Kedit, Ipoi Datan

Local university students were invited to attend woodcut workshops hosted by Pangrok Sulap.
