On 25 - 26 February, experience a Sabah-style Tamu at the Godown Arts Centre! Ushering in Malaysia's 60th year, Tamu Tanah & Air will host various organisations, artists, and collectives — bridging the geography, history and the cultural heritage of Borneo and the Peninsula through art, workshops, talks, produce, storytelling, screenings and learning for all! Alongside contemporary and traditional artists, the Tamu brings together friends working with "tanah" and "air" – in community-based projects, in green agricultural and hydro technologies, promoting different modes of learning and play, local literatures, music and poetry, artisanal produce, and sustainable living. Come sit on the mat and join the conversations. There'll be fabulous food and drink and other stalls too around The Godown, including laksa Sarawak, mee kolok, lihing, tuak, kek lapis, kombucha, coffee, and Vietnamese food too... First 250 bookings will receive a RM5 COUPON to spend with participants/vendors! Free entry for kids & warga emas.
