Made-in-Malaysia festival in celebration of Malaysia Day




AIRASIA Foundation and REXKL are set to celebrate Malaysia Day with a free admission festival titled Made-in-Malaysia on Sept 14 and 15.

To be held at REXKL in the historic heart of Kuala Lumpur, the festival aims to highlight what makes the country a true melting pot. Over 20 exciting cultural activities are in store for attendees including children’s lion dance and shadow puppet-making workshops, martial arts demonstrations, calligraphy lessons, and cooking classes for classic Malaysian favourites.

Headlining the talks sessions is Food Ambassador of Tourism Malaysia Datuk Chef Wan and a highly anticipated line-up including film director Tan Yew Leong, musician and composer Pete Teo, and documentary-maker Indrani Kopal.

More than just a weekend festival, Made-in-Malaysia is an endeavour to promote unity among Malaysians, and showcasing the multicultural nation as a multi-faceted gem to locals and visitors alike.

“This festival is about celebrating diversity while strengthening unity. By promoting different cultures and fostering a sense of community, we hope to create an environment whereby all Malaysians can thrive and succeed, ” said AirAsia Foundation executive director Yap Mun Ching.

REXKL, at 80 Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur, was formerly the iconic Rex Cinema, which has been transformed into a multicultural creative and entrepreneurial hub.

It houses Destination: GOOD, AirAsia Foundation’s flagship social enterprise hub that currently retails more than 400 responsibly and ethically produced goods from more than 30 social enterprises across Asean.

Destination: GOOD, a retail space and a movement that encourages people to shop and travel sustainably, aims to foster collaboration between Asean social entrepreneurs and community-based enterprises.
