Wayang Apa? Wayang TEK-tek

Wayang TEK-tek is a workshop series by Sekolah Main Wayang, which focuses on Orang Asli (OA) youths, and the program brings together Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and lo tech or DIY tech (tek) into a wayang-like performance. Following successful pilot programmes with Orang Asli youths in Gombak, Kuala Lumpur and Bota, Perak, Wayang TEKTek comes to Ilham Gallery with Wayang Apa? Wayang TEK-tek, promising pop-ups, a sharing session on the findings and outcomes of the programme, a panel discussion with members of Sekolah Main Wayang, and workshops conducted by youths from the Bota programme. We speak to Fairuz Sulaiman (Facilitator, Sekolah Main Wayang) and Wendi Sia (Project Manager of Wayang TekTek & Co-Founder, Gerimis Art Project) to find out more.
