Bonding With Gaya Street: ‘Wayang Free’
Saving up for Valentine’s Day? Not all activities require money. Tonight, there will be ‘Wayang Free,’ a free outdoor movie at Padang Merdeka as part of the ‘Bonding with Gaya Street‘ event. All you need to do is bring yourself and a mat, or ‘tikar’ as locals call it. We’ll let the video above do the talking!
Here’s the full programme for ‘Bonding With Gaya Street’. See you there!
Bonding With Gaya Street is an event co-organized by the North Borneo History Enthusiasts and Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu. Look out for us on February 10-12, 2012 at Gaya Street/Lintasan Deasoka.
Part tribute, and part celebratory–BWGS aims to be humble and community-centred project for our culture, history and heritage. The project as a whole is about us through old photographs, talking about it and collecting and archiving them.
We want to excite feelings of nostalgia and even joy in the stories that made us grow as a community.
We want to talk about our social-histories; the kind of stories that our parents told us or our grandparents.
We want to talk about collective memories; the kind of stories that gives us an understanding of our voice and identity.
We want to bond with Gaya Street.
