Borak Arts Series, has welcomed more than 760 of delegates from 20 countries, 17 international festival directors and venue programmers, 32 international and local funding stakeholders, since 2013, and is now returning to its official home base – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia after a 2-year run in Georgetown, Penang.

In addition, MyPAA is also offering travel bursary for 10 artists from West Malaysia (Borneo) and Southeast Asia (not applicable to artists from Peninsular Malaysia) who are keen to join and experience the conference.
According to Brian Johnson Lowe, “Since 2012, MyPAA has always strived to enable access to knowledge that would contribute to the development of arts and culture. Besides heavily subsidising the conference’s admission fee, thus making the conference one of the most affordable international networking platforms in the world, MyPAA is offering complimentary tickets and travel bursaries to encourage performing arts students and artists around Southeast Asia, who would not have the means to participate in an international congregation of aspiring artists and movers and shakers from the performing arts community.”
