Get ready to challenge mind-sets, reignite lost passions and be inspired at the 2nd Kancil Creative Festival, a two-day festival to be held at RexKL, organised by the Association of Accredited Advertising Agents Malaysia (4As).
Themed “Belief Creates”, the festival will showcase passionate personalities from a variety of disciplines, as they share their philosophies on how creativity can be a powerful tool with faith as a driving force. Those attending the event can expect chaotic creative fun, with exhibitions, mini workshops, dialogue sessions, and immersive experiences centred on the premise that conviction can conceive the most amazing things from the human mind.
Alvin Teoh, Kancil Creative Festival’s Creative Council Chairman(pictured above) said, “The theme ‘Belief Creates’ is very apt in today’s world, where so many things that leave an impact on us are driven by beliefs. The festival focuses on the fundamentals of the “why” in our actions, which help us unlock the potential of what we can achieve as an agency, a business, a community, or as individuals.”
The festival line-up of 13 diverse speakers also includes Eleanor Goroh, beader, cultural activist, artist; Ismail Kamarul, filmmaker, Executive Producer, Reservoir Productions; Ruban Sundaram, Vice-President of Marketing, Etika; Sonal Dabral, Chief Creative Officer South and South-East Asia and Vice-Chairman India at Ogilvy; Stefen Chow, photographer, filmmaker, data-storyteller; James Whitelow Delano, reportage photographer, documentary storyteller, founder of Everyday Climate Change; Ian Yee, Elroi Yee, and Samantha Chow, investigative journalists at R.AGE; and Jia Ping, Programme Director at Think City.
Teoh added, “With this group of speakers at the festival, we are excited to see how their beliefs will inspire others to develop brands, fuel causes, push boundaries in technology, create meaning, spark curiosity, build bridges, and design things that last.”
Karthi Palanisamy, Organising Chairman of the festival said, “Following the success of the inaugural Kancil Creative Festival last year, we hope to surpass the feat by creating more exhilarating experiences for festival-goers with the diverse roster of expert speakers. With an inspiring setting like the revived RexKL, we know attendees will take home not only fresh perspectives, but also a renewed sense of purpose.”
The festival will conclude with the Kancil Awards Night, Malaysia’s foremost awards for advertising agencies.
