'Heritage & Cultural Art Camp in Sarawak with the Ukit/Bhuket Community' and 'The Rattan Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur'

CANVAS ART believes it’s time to create an engaging and impactful program for the unheard communities such as the Ukit/Bhuket community (580 people) in Sarawak by conducting a ‘Heritage & Cultural Art Camp’ and to showcase all our efforts from that camp by exhibiting ‘The Rattan Exhibition’ in Kuala Lumpur to create a bigger awareness and impact for the Ukit/Bhuket community who are known for their rattan weaving works.

The purpose of this project is to get to know other Malaysian cultures to better understand and respect the diversity, sharing cultural experiences with a visual art (art workshops, talks and competition) approach from Sarawak to Kuala Lumpur and to share business knowledge to the Ukit/Bhuket community to improve the livelihood of their community.

The 'Rattan Exhibition with the Ukit/Bhuket community' showcases various layers of the community and cultural art activities conducted at the "Heritage & Cultural Art Camp" together with youths and the community in Uma Ukit, Sungai Asap Koyan, Sarawak. Both program and exhibition is organised by CANVAS ART CREATIVE and supported by MOTAC & GMBB with the purpose of highlighting and recognising the unique heritage, cultural practices, and artistic skills of the UKIT/BHUKET people.

The UKIT/BHUKET community can only be found in ONE location today in Malaysia and is proud to show their exquisite rattan works and cultural traditions in this exhibition.

"There’s not many pictures of me with my family when we were little, this photograph brought back so many memories from that time. Life was difficult and my sweet gentle mother kept herself together and took care of us. Love the photograph that Faye and Mann Lin from Canvas Art restored for our family, it was restored so well and even managed to enlarge it. My mother was so excited that she immediately wanted to purchase it. It was really touching to see her super excited and truly shocked to see her photograph on the wall. I would like to thank Mann and Faye for this amazing opportunity. My mother’s reaction was priceless..."
