This week, to be or not to be. To have a vibrant Malaysian performing arts scene or to not, that is the question. Can our creative content industry have a thriving performing arts scene? We’ll take a look at finances in performing arts and how can things move ahead, how Malaysia’s performing arts industry can be more sustainable in the future.
