Project Synopsis

River Clean-up Activity with Community of Annah Rais is an effort by lecturers and first-year students (Design Technology) from the Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts to contribute towards the community. This activity cultivates a responsible designer mentality among students about the surrounding environment and community. The activity was conducted as part of the GKT1014 Elements and Principles of Design course, where students participated in outdoor sketching and river clean-up activity at Annah Rais Hot Spring. In addition to the Outdoor Sketching Activity and River Cleanup, the students had the opportunity to participate in Art Jam Session organized and sponsored by the Sarawak Artist Society in conjunction with Sarawak International  Art Camp 2022 at Annah Rais Longhouse. As a result, the students get to interact with the international artist community involved with the camp.

This project not only allowed students to appreciate the environment and nature but also exposed the first-year students to local culture and built a good relationship with the local community, local and international artists.
