KDCA collaborates with Sabah Art Gallery and Le Meridian, launches design competition

10th May, 2016


KOTA KINABALU: In an effort to elevate the cultural art of the Kadazandusun community, the Kadazandusun Cultural Association (KDCA) has launched a design competition open to all Malaysians.

It will be divided into two categories with 2D for paintings that are done in oil, acrylic, water colour, batik, prints and wood carvings as well as 3D for handicraft, woven work and traditional baskets.

Entries should be contemporary interpretations of traditional Kadazandusun design and selected pieces will end up being featured at the Sabah Art Gallery to stress upon the importance of culture and arts.

The competition is a collaboration by the KDCA Women’s Council, Sabah Art Gallery and Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu Hotel.

Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Datuk Masidi Manjun said the design competition would not only help in preserving the cultural heritage of the community but also enrich it by making it more appealing to the international communities.

“We are rich in cultural arts but don’t have the expertise or taken any step to commercialise these products to bring profit.

“I therefore hope that with this competition we can give an opportunity to those keen in arts and culture to explore their talent using Kadazandusun elements,” he said when meeting reporters after launching the competition at Le Meridien here yesterday.

Also present were the Chairperson of the KDCA Women’s Council, Joanna Kitingan and Sabah Art Gallery Curator, Jennifer Linggi.

Meanwhile, Joanna said the council wanted to revive Kadazandusun art while discovering hidden talents. We welcome everyone to participate and especially Kadazandusuns wherever they are in the world,” she said.
