Salute to Malaysia with #lot10xmerdeka

#lot10openstage

In honour of the nation’s 61st Independence Day this August, Lot 10 will stage the first-ever #lot10xmerdeka, a host of activities from 25 August to 2 September to drum up the patriotic spirit and celebrate everything truly Malaysian.

Starting with Merdeka Kraf from 25 to 26 August at the Concourse, The Language Arts Studio, a homegrown Malaysian studio that supports literary and fine arts, will be celebrating Malaysia’s independence at Lot 10 with Merdeka Kraf featuring ceramics, painting, writing and woodwork activities.

FIVE celebrated Malaysian craftsmen and artisans will organise creative and engaging activities for both adults and children. Arts and craft workshops will allow shoppers to be hands-on in making Merdeka-themed crafts such as ceramic cup coaster painting class by Purple Ling, hand-weaving of Penan bags and baskets with the Helping Hands Penan, creating table lamps and model catapults with Super Brain Bridge as well as making wood crafts and natural soap bars with G Wood & Craft.

The Language Arts Studio will also provide a space for writing, art jam and face painting activities. A traditional game station offering free and interactive activities to children and adults will be set up to rekindle the love of Malaysian games we grew up with such as batu seremban, gasing, congkak and carom.

Following the success of the screening of the South Korean hit “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” in June, #lot10cinemaparadiso is making a patriotic comeback for Merdeka Day with two screenings of a local social documentary film “Rediscovering Each Other” on 30 and 31 August at the Basketball Court.

Filmed across communities throughout Malaysia by the social enterprise TRP Creative, the 2017 film presented by the Rojak Projek focuses on discovering and embracing the rich diversity of race, language and culture of Malaysians and their integration for one united nation; a definite not-to-be missed film.

Continuing from Mereka Kraf for the best of local retail offering is We.Women Market – We are Local Artisans (Merdeka Artisan Showcase) making a return to the Concourse from 30 August to 2 September. Themed to the Merdeka weekend, a curation of outstanding local artisans and vendors will assemble for shoppers the best of Malaysian crafts and products locally sourced and produced.
