People of The Land: Creative Residency 2018
An immersive two-week programme of knowledge-exchange, skill-sharing, and bonding for Bornean creatives. Partnership with HAUS Kch, a creative community hub and Catama Borneo.
Over 40 visual artists, performers, craft makers, educators and researchers participated in the residency programme from 4th – 14th October 2018.
Community Outreach Programme: Kampung Sadir
6 - 8 October 2018
Collaborators travelled to the Bidayuh kampung of Kampung Sadir, Padawan for three days of skill-sharing and knowledge exchange with kampung artisans (titled ‘Balik Kampung’), fulfilling BBs mission in upholding traditional knowledge.
Kampung artisans shared their knowledge on mat-weaving, basket-weaving, and parang making among other things, and BB collaborators responded with skill-sharing workshops (printmaking and drawing) targeted towards kampung youths and children.
Saloma Villagestay hosted the collaborators, with its owner, Saloma Lisa, playing an integral role in helping to arrange activities in the kampung.
