Mural maze an initiative to highlight Sarawak’s ethnic diversity

Date:

KUCHING: Hosting a Sarawak-themed mural programme would give more attention to the state’s ethnic diversity.

Datuk Seri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah said such programmes would also ensure that cultural heritage would not be forgotten.

“The mural depicts Sarawak tourism through five angles – culture, adventure, nature, food and festivals (CANFF).

“It is an effort by students from various universities in collaboration with talents from the Sarawak Society for the Deaf.

“As a result, it serves as both a celebration of Sarawak’s uniqueness and also a fundraising initiative for the association.”

The Minister for Tourism, Creative Industry and Performing Arts said this during the Sarawak 2022 Largest Maze Themed Mural press conference at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching here today.

He explained that the project was completed in five months by Universiti Malaysia Sarawak, Universiti Teknologi Mara Samarahan, Swinburne Universiti Sarawak, UCSI University Kuching and Universiti Teknologi Sarawak.

“The exhibition is ready to create a new record in the Malaysian Book of Records, by exhibiting murals measuring 1,370 square metres.

“It will undoubtedly be a proud moment for us Sarawakians.”

“As such, the ministry will continue to support such activities to help the local artist community.

“The public are invited to experience for themselves the mural maze starting today until June 8,” he added.
