#BAYS Plus Coming to Ipoh!

A desire to be something, a dream to be somebody and a goal to be successful, these are the words we should hold onto in life. While life may have kicked you hard sometimes, it is never too late to go back to the right path and chase that dream of yours. Learn how to be better, familiarise yourself with the field you want to pursue and get to know those who have made it and study their key to success. It is good to get an insight from those who have experience because experience is indeed the best teacher in life.

Coming to Ipoh this April 23 and 24, My Performing Arts Agency (MYPAA) together with Bursa Malaysia under its Bursa Bull Charge programme is organising the Borak Art Youth Series (#BAYS) Plus happening at Heritage Hotel!

Created and curated by MyPAA, #BAYS Plus is the extended version of BAYS where the programme aims to spark the fire of entrepreneurism among Malaysian youths who have passion and skills  in the arts and creative fields. This will allow students and young artistes to immerse in the country’s best alternative creative world and dive into exciting workshops that will aid them in starting their desired business such as recording, fashion and creative writing, to name a few.

Exclusively for this year, Fikri Satari the chairman of Bandung Creative City Forum, Indonesia, will be one of the panel together with Malaysian Film Director and Founder of Sarang Art Hub, Mamat Khalid, Filipino lad Kaloy Uypuanco of Sonic Boom & Above Line Production and many other talented and experienced speakers will be at #BAYS Plus to share the stories of their successful journey as well as dropping tips and tricks for those who are keen on making a name in the arts field.

#BAYS Plus will also include MyPAA’s ARTIVATE (Activate the Artpeneur in You) facilitated by the Bandung Creative Forum team . Eizaz Azhar from Guitar Empire, Fikri Fadzil from The Wknd, Hugh Koh from Pestle & Mortal Clothing, MDeC’s Hasnul Hadi Samsudin and the producer from ‘Terbaik Dari Langit’, the man behind Playground Production, Tuan “Tapai” Faisal will be speaking at the forum. Not to forget writer, Wani Ardy and Meor “Myo” Shahiran from Bodysurf Music & MUCK will also make appearances at the two-day affair together with other talented speakers.

Due to their success organising previous BAYS since 2014 including the one in Ipoh last year, founder and director of MyPAA, Izan Satrina Dato’ Mohd Sallehuddin is excited to return to the city that is rich with pop-culture amongst its youth.

“Having the same vision with our partners, we hope that we get to help enabling the youth community to follow their passion and reach their potential. It has been a solid collaboration with Bursa Malaysia and I hope they will take this chance and attend BAYS Plus.”
