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.

Open day was held on the same day with the Showcase-Tirai. The purpose of the Open Day is to launch our program for 2018. Activities conducted were Drum Circle, Gamelan by Rapsodi (our in-house Gamelan Players), Arts & Crafts, Creative Story Telling, Baking and Sewing.
The activities were teasers to what we will offer in our semester programmes. Many parents and children participated in each of the activities.
20 children from Rumah Amal Suci Rohani attended this Open Day and OrphanCare Foundation took up a booth to promote their organisation. Amongst the booths opened that day were the henna design, drinks, food trucks and jewelleries.

SPK Pertuturan KIU is a school which specialises with deaf children, teaching sign language and lip reading. A total of 50 children participated in our one-day programme classes. 25 students participated in Young Chef & the other 25 participated in Story Telling. The children and teachers had an enjoyable time and would like to visit PKK Tuanku Bainun again.
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 .
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 done 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 mesmerized 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 benefiting the two organisations toward achieving their shared goals.
The MoU, held at Temu Tamu was signed by Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Wan Mohamad Yaacob bin Wan Salaidin, PKK Tuanku Bainun’s Director and Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Daud Ahmad, President SOKL.
The exchange of documents were witnessed by Yang Teramat Mulia Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen binti Sultan Azlan Shah, Chairman of PKK Tuanku Bainun, Yang Mulia Raja Mazlena binti Raja Aziz, General Manager 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 venues, facilities, equipment and general volunteers for the Special Olympics athletes in Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan.
Special Olympics is the world’s largest sport organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
9 students from S.K Bukit Lanjan, Petaling Jaya performed in front of the Sultan Perak, Duli Yang Maha Mulia Sultan Nazrin Muizuddin Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Azlan Shah Muhibuddin Shah Al-Maghfur-lah and the Prime Minister of Malaysia at the Khazanah Raya Open House at the Mandarin Oriental Hotal Kuala Lumpur on the 14th July 2017.
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.
A Bocce Mini Tournament was held on the 9th September 2017. This mini tournament drew a total of 40 participants ranging from 8 years and above, from Pusat Kreatif, Pusat Jagaan dan Latihan Insan Istimewa (IMC) and the Kiwanis Down Syndrome Foundation.
An event such as this is so much more than the sport and Special Olympics. It is a platform for parents, participants, volunteers and the general public to get together. More importantly, it creates inclusivity as well an avenue for the participants and parents to socialise and make friends.
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 Temu Tamu Hall and later proceeded to KuAsh Theatre for the auction.
Second Fundraising Art Exhibition 2018 will be taking place on 7-12 August 2018 at the KuAsh Theatre.
7th October 2017
Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur (JKM WPKL) and PKK Tuanku Bainun entered into a collaboration on children’s creative programme with the signing of an MoU at Temu Tamu Hall in October.
The MoU was signed by Puan Wan Noraidah, JKM WPKL Director and Yang Mulia Puan Raja Mazlena, PKK Tuanku Bainun’s General Manager, and witnessed by PKK Tuanku Bainun’s Chairman, Raja Dato’ Seri Azureen binti Sultan Azlan Shah.
This collaborative children’s creativity programme aims to expose children and teenagers from Projek Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) and Perumahan Awam (PA) to the arts, heritage and culture through our Alam Kreatif Programmes for underprivileged children and to fill their spare time with beneficial activities rather than social ills and immoral activities. With this in mind, JKM WPKL and PKK Tuanku Bainun have taken this initiative to open and steer the minds of these children towards a goal.
