The Kreatif Kommunity
At Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun, we believe that art is also a means by which to serve the community and the development of a strong network of creative minds can only further the progress of the arts in Malaysia. In light of this conviction, we have organized a series of programs that involve both adults and children alike.

CHILDREN CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
Children are the force to be reckoned with as they hold the power to change the world they want to live in. Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun started the Children Can Change The World Series in order to give these children a platform to not only share their gracious heart with the world but also adapt skills that will allow them to change their environment to make it a better place to live in.
FREE COFFEE FOR PARENTS
At Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun, we believe that the development and nurturing of a child takes place at each and every moment. As their life-givers, carers and the people that spend the most time with them, parents bear the brunt of the burden of ensuring that their children have a safe environment in which to learn and grow. We believe that these noble enablers also need a safe space to gather, build support networks and grow.
Free Coffee For Parents is an initiative to create exactly that space. Since February 2016, Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun has worked with facilitators to provide workshops on a diverse range of topics. Parents get to kick back and relax while participating in enriching experiences.
The first Free Coffee for Parents session was introduced to the public and media on Friday, 26th February 2016. MPH presented the first speaker, Michelle Lim Chua sharing her experiences on mindful parenting. COSANS Coffee has come on board to provide the coffee for the series. Our guest of honour, DYMM Raja Permaisuri Perak Tuanku Zara Salim, together with our Chairman, YTM Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen Binti Sultan Azlan Shah and board of directors, YTM Dato’ Seri Noraini Jane Marree Ariffin and Dato’ Wan Mohamed Yaacob Bin Dato’ Wan Salaidin very kindly graced the occasion.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun welcomes contributions from all individuals who would like to contribute their time, items, services or resources. Our volunteers would have the opportunity to serve young people from all walks of life and get to put their own talents to use in the service of others. Some ways in which volunteers can contribute would be to assist in the coordination of our programmes, administrative tasks and assisting our staff with the coordination of events.

Gema Gemalai is the culmination of the Joget Gamelan Sustainability and Cultural Heritage Project by Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun and PUSAKA, supported by Yayasan Hasanah, a foundation of Khazanah Nasional.
This project aims to enhance the conservation of the Joget Gamelan, a royal court tradition of Terengganu, by training 52 students from Terengganu and Kuala Lumpur in the art.
This showcase is the maiden public performance of these young students.
This delightful showcase was graced by Her Royal Highness Raja Permaisuri Perak Darul Ridzuan, Tuanku Zara Salim and PKK Tuanku Bainun’s Chairman, YTM Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen binti Sultan Azlan Shah
It was the followed by speeches from Mr Eddin Khoo, the founder and director of PUSAKA and Tan Sri Dato Azman Mokhtar, Managing Director of Khazanah Nasional Berhad .
The opening act , ‘’Silat Tari’’ was performed by the children from Rumah Solehah and Rumah Safiyyah whilst the instrumental gamelan performance was by students of SMK Sultan Sulaiman, Kuala Terengganu.
The Gamelan ensemble, under the PUSAKA training programme, with the cooperation of Warisan Sari, played the “Perang Selinang”, “Nongga” and “Gambuh Menyanyi” melodies.
The audience were captivated and mesmerised by the delicate and supple movements of the dancers performing the Joget Gamelan to the tune of “Togok”, Joget Gamelan Timang Burung and the energetic Tarian Topeng.
The signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding between PKK Tuanku Bainun with Special Olympics Kuala Lumpur (SOKL) took place on the 23rd May 2017, seeking a collaboration benefitting the two organisations toward achieving their shared goals.
The MoU, held at TemuTamu was signed by YBhg Dato’ Wan Mohamed Yaacob bin Wan Salaidin, PKK Tuanku Bainun’s Director and YBhg Dato’ Daud Ahmad, President SOKL.
The exchange of documents were witnessed by YTM Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen binti Sultan Azlan Shah, Chairman of PKK Tuanku Bainun, and Cik Azida Dato’ Daud, Chair Interim Management Committee, Special Olympics.
The establishment of a Bocce Training Centre falls neatly into place with PKK Tuanku Bainun’s Alam Kreatif Programme; whereby games form a part of the living-skills programme along with gardening, culinary and sewing.
PKK Tuanku Bainun took this opportunity to simultaneously announce our support of the Special Olympics Sports Programme by way of availing venue, facilities, equipment and general volunteers for the Special Olympics athletes in Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan.
9 Students from S.K. Bukit Lanjan, Petaling Jaya performed in front of the Sultan of Perak, DYMM Sultan Nazrin Muizuddin Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Azlan Muhibuddin Shah Al-Maghfur-lah and the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato Seri Hj Mohammad Najib Razak at the Khazanah Raya Open House at the Majesctic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
These students are from the Alam Gamelan class which is funded by Yayasan Hasanah. They performed the Togok, Antawada and Timang Burung. The Khazanah Raya Open House has certainly created an opportunity for the students of S.K. Bukit Lanjan to be the “Alam Gamelan Performers” as this was their first performance outside Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun.
52 artworks have been selected to be put up on auction, each one representative of the different interpretation that is essentially art. Artworks were by well-known local artists such as Khalil Ibrahim, Awang Damit Ahmad, Tajuddin ismail, Yusof Ghani and Jolly Koh to name a few.
Guests arrived to a brunch at the TemuTamu Hall and later proceeded to KuAsh Theatre for the auction.
