Rejoice in Togetherness

Rejoice in Togetherness

The Chinese Spring Festival is one of the most celebrated festival in the world, which marks a celebration of a new year according to traditional Chinese calendar, a time where friends and family come together and bond over delicious food and drinks, creating unforgettable moments through countless interaction and laughter. It was with this aim that during this festive season, The Drawing Room had held a two-day cultural event called – “Rejoice in Togetherness” – on the 18th and 19th January 2020.

The event received an overwhelming and positive response from the public and attracted more than 600 people from across the world at our studio, SCULPTUREATWORK. We were honored to collaborate with some of the most amazing cultural preserver in Malaysia, which includes UNI, a media platform for preserving local culture, and a youth association from Kuala Kubu Bharu, who led the main activity for this event which was the making of Glutinous Rice Cake, a significant cultural food during Chinese New Year.

During the design and planning phase, our team was dedicated in creating comfortable spaces that allow our visitors to dine, interact and move freely in some of our art gallery. We provided a unique experience for our visitors through our space that sparked elements of childhood memories of their past and an opportunity to reunite with friends and family. It was a cultural gathering of the revival of old ways, created in a conjoined effort with our vendor partners to rediscover old Chinese roots. We mapped out the event by bringing together traditional performers, long-lost cultural food and activities that have faded in recent times.

We are extremely grateful the event turned out to be a success and it is a testimony of our passion in delivering quality cultural events in the future.

在2020年度马来西亚旅游年期間,马来西亚旅游委员会(Malaysia Tourism Council Gold Awards)作为马来西亚一大文化推手,借其大奖的颁奖典礼,顺势将功绩耀眼的各行业领军人物齐聚一堂。

在这个颁奖典礼中,马来西亚华人博物馆创始人丹斯里吴德芳代表了马来西亚华人博物馆领取“2019年最佳华人文物馆”及“2019年最佳旅游景点(华人博物馆)”的奖项。

马来西亚华人博物馆是第一间以我国华人历史事迹作为展出的博物馆,而故事轴则是从最初华人南下到馬來半岛开始统整文物资料等。马来西亚华人博物馆透过说故事的方法展示马来西亚本土華人历史的建构,以兹发扬本地文化以及启迪社会。

SCULPTUREATWORK作为博物馆的主要设计与建筑的负责单位,在执行的过程中花费了不少心思,像是进行历史考察及到各地收集文物及原材料,以尽我们最大的能力将历史的还原到最接近当时的面貌,同时为来宾创造世界级的体验。我們以设计制作微型雕塑品、实物大小般的陈设品、仿照市井生活与历史事迹来讲述历史,甚至连如入口处的仿古双叶门扉也是由我们的团队制作。而历史事迹则涵盖了早期华人移民到马来半岛的历史、华裔祖先如何为了更好的生活奋斗以及华人对马来西亚发展的贡献。希望透过这类有趣的展出方式能够将严肃的历史事迹演绎成大众较为接受的形态,并且从中了解我国华人的史事。

我们非常荣幸能够参与马来西亚华人博物馆的设计与建立,并且见证了博物馆这个辉煌的时刻,我们在这里再次恭喜马来西亚中华大会堂总会及马来西亚华人博物馆!
