all for arts : arts for all
At klpac, our only agenda is to advance the arts in Malaysia. With an open-door policy welcoming people of all backgrounds, nurturing new talent and arts appreciation is part of our DNA.
Besides subsidies and discounted tickets, we run a variety of development programmes, opportunity-oriented platforms and educational initiatives for aspiring performers as well as those who wish to deepen their understanding and appreciation for the arts.
Shows & Productions
klpac presents a varied programming from dance to theatre, concerts to musicals. Made by Malaysians for Malaysians and the world, we premiere many new works as well as new talents. Open auditions are held regularly.
Home to many festivals, one that everyone looks out for is the annual Short+Sweet Malaysia festival where you can sign up to present your bite-sized work. We also co-produce Malaysia’s largest free-for-all arts festival Yayasan Sime Darby Arts Festival (YSDAF).
