Chief Minister’s wife Datuk Amar Juma’ani Tuanku Bujang admiring the songket weaved by the inmates at Puncak Borneo Prison (New Sarawak Tribune Pic) WEAVING songket is no easy skill. But 22 inmates at Puncak Borneo Prison, had managed to weave 20 Sarawak songket last year and plans are afoot to make the detention centre the largest songket industry hub in Borneo.

The workshop is part of the Sarawak Heritage Innovation ― songket and keringkam project ― between the Sarawak government and Sarawak Prisons Department, New Sarawak Tribune reported. Most of the inmates who went through an interview session for the project showed their interest to become a weaver in the future. “Thus, we will look for supporting agencies for them after they have been released,” he said.

Celebrating Kuching’s culture and heritage

Celebrating Kuching’s culture and heritage

THE Rainforest Fringe Festival has become a firm fixture on Kuching's calendar of events ever since it burst onto the scene in 2017. Back for its third edition this past week, the festival was packed with all manner of events and activities related to arts, culture and heritage, from music and storytelling performances to exhibitions, talks and art installations. In short, there were so many things happening and no time to see them all, but what I did manage to catch was generally worthwhile. For a start, the "Over Sarawak" exhibition by photojournalist David ST Loh at the UOB Building displayed some striking shots of notable landmarks and less-well-known scenes in Sarawak, including a number of images taken directly from above with a drone. I had the opportunity to interview Loh and he said his aim was to show people a different perspective of the places that they think they know, and through that to inspire a deeper appreciation of Sarawak's beauty and rich...

Sarawak eyes several location in Kuching as Unesco heritage sites

KUCHING, May 25 — The Sarawak government will be requesting for several locations in Kuching city to be listed as United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) world heritage sites. Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Openg said the state government and Kuching North City Hall will identify historical sites in the state capital to be listed as a world heritage site. “We will upgrade the Sarawak Cultural Heritage Ordinance. Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah (state Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Minister) is working on it. “Most probably, we will table the new enactment on heritage at the next Sarawak state legislative assembly sitting, and the law provision has to be amended first,” he told reporters after opening  the Gawai Dayak Bazaar in India Street here. Commenting further, Abang Johari, however, said, there were several conditions that needed to be fulfilled before local experts can study on the matter. “For example, in Penang, they can declare certain streets as world heritage sites because...
