So much more than a basic bookshop, Projek Rabak encompasses all forms of art beyond literature in its gallery expansion in Kuala Lumpur, all the way from its home base in Ipoh. Sourcing provocative materials from passionate Malaysian youths, this indie space favours the non-conformists, the almost-abstract and the daring who are brave enough to put their dreams in word, paint, or performance. The gallery is also the force behind Ipoh Kreative, a week-long annual creative festival aimed at educating locals on the value and quality of pop art and culture.
