Profile

Pangkor Island Festival (PIF) is a pioneering island-based festival where community, culture and arts come to play. 邦咯海島節是馬來西亞第一個結合海島風光與社區文化的藝術節。

Pangkor Island is well known for its beautiful weather and amazing seashores. Unknown to most, Pangkor Island has more to offer – there are still many untold tales waiting to be unveiled.

Tourists generally alight at Pangkor Jetty and often spent their time relaxing at the beach. It is rare to see tourists venturing deeper into the island to discover the serene and carefree lifestyle of ordinary folks at the small town of Sungai Pinang Kecil.

Currently, the island is populated mostly by old folks and young children. A lot of important historical stories are circulated merely through word of mouth in the form of folklore amongst the locals. The oral histories are seldom recorded and validated.

Thus, co-organiser of PIF, A Pangkor Hill (APH), hopes to work with local communities to endorse and improve art education within Pangkor. By educating locals regarding the importance of cultural preservation, APH seeks to record and preserve the historical and cultural milestones and also to establish a platform for Pangkorians to connect with and keep track of the latest news in the art scene.

邦咯島,一個賦予人們的印象除了陽光、沙灘與海,當中還潛藏著許多鮮為人知的故事。

遊客一般集中在邦咯或海邊,鮮少發掘其他小鎮的細節,甚至連當地人也並未仔細回溯過去保存下來的寶貴歷史故事與景點。邦咯島島民過著極簡單和踏實的生活,和大城市有著截然不同的純樸。島上大部份剩下老人和小孩, 許多歷史回憶只能憑當地居民口述,那些值得記載和記錄的人事物都無法得到實體的認證。

爲了保留這份歷史足跡,未來要追溯過去時也還有跡可循。我們需要另一股力量去記錄和建立這個歷史故事庫,用藝術的能量引領每個扣人心弦的小故事。

主辦單位之一,邦咯藝術山丘,致力集結當地居民力量,以推動邦咯島社區文化與促進島上藝術教育普及化為宗旨。透過與社區的對話連接,致力記錄及保存島上歷史文化足跡,探討永續經營的可能性,建立邦咯島內外藝術接軌的平台。
