In 1979, the Malaysian Secretariat of the UN International Year of the Child (IYC), recommended that to commemorate this historical occasion meaningfully, something tangible should be established which could benefit the children of Malaysia, at all times.
In 1989, at the Annual Children’s Day Celebrations in Stadium Negara, DYMM Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Bainun reiterated the need for such a centre.
In response to DYMM Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Bainun’s request, Pusat Kreatif Kanak-Kanak Tuanku Bainun (Pusat Kreatif) was established as a centre where children and youth come together to explore and develop their creativity through Alam Kreatif; a programme developed to enhance cognitive skills, as well as develop their potentials and inherent talents, be it in an open space area or a fully-equipped studio.
The centre is a playground of self-discovery, where learning is fun and children may develop moral and ethical values - a caring nature will be a way of life.
Pusat Kreatif Kanak-kanak Tuanku Bainun (PKK Tuanku Bainun) under the patronage of Yang Maha Mulia Raja Permaisuri Tuanku Bainun, is a non-profit organisation with a mission established officially in February 2013 to provide a safe haven for children and youth from the age of 7 - 17 years old regardless of income, gender, religion, language or ability can have access to creative learning to explore and develop an appreciation of the arts, talents and cultures of diverse communities.
We believe that creativity is an integral element to every child's learning, and that all children and youth should have access to the arts.
Located in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, our Centre offers venues such as learning, dance, arts & culinary studios, an experimental theatre (KuAsh Theatre), a function hall and open spaces suitable for a variety of activities.
Creative programmes by PKK Tuanku Bainun comes under Alam Kreatif, specialising in arts, culture, heritage, and nature. Our objective is to instill the importance of basic human values, appreciation and exposure to local arts, heritage, culture and a love for nature. Activities are aimed at promoting creativity, confidence and empowerment in hopes of enriching children's lives and those around them.
“We want children and youth to have the opportunity to think, tinker, experiment, express and create.”
