PAM-Gahara Batik Millennia Student Design Competition 2020

Gahara and PAM Education Committee will be collaborating on a design competition targeting architecture students to create a batik design for a copper block suited for millennials.

Designed to provide an opportunity for students to be part of the creative economy, this competition is unique as it exposes them to both batik and entrepreneurship that can help educate them about culture and how to help sustain the local arts and crafts community with their contribution.

Themed “Aspirana Millennia'' to allow a wide girth of what excites the younger generation, the competition seeks students to explore and innovate ideas and to combine elements of architecture to create what they feel would be a suitable pattern for a batik print on fabric. The winning motif will be converted into a copper block and hopes to put a modern and fresh spin on batik not just for Gahara, but for the batik community in Malaysia.
