MyPAA Malaysia, a member of the International Federation of Arts Councils and Culture Agencies (IFACCA), is seeking preliminary expressions of interest in hosting the 6th and 7th Borak Arts SeriesTM to be held in the period of late-2018 and late-2019 respectively.
Borak Arts SeriesTM serves as a platform for artistes, managers, presenters/producers, intermediaries, funders, agents, festival directors, venue programmers and art and culture enthusiasts to take discussions forward to break boundaries and strengthen relationships across ASEAN communities and beyond. The boutique conference has gained traction as a brand value known within the arts and cultural sector at a local and international level with a media value amounting to MYR 10million and has hosted more than 800 delegates from 14 countries, including from ASEAN, Japan, Korea, Ukraine, the United States, Australia and India, only to name a few.
The first two Borak Arts SeriesTM were organised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 2013 and 2014. In 2015 and 2016, Borak Arts SeriesTM was hosted in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia, under the programming of the internationally renowned, George Town Festival. Borak Arts SeriesTM 2017 returns to Kuala Lumpur on 14 – 15 October 2017. More information can be found at http://www.borakarts.com or http://mypaa.com.my/borakarts/.
