Art4HutanKita is a self-leading and distributed movement of artists and creators, united by these aims:
- To defend Temuan indigenous land, and
- To save North Kuala Langat Forest Reserve (NKLFR) from being degazetted for development
Initiated by Sharon Chin and Zedeck Siew, Art4HutanKita began with a field trip composed of artists, writers, and creative practitioners to the NKLFR on March 2020. The website was built as a platform to share our experiences and responses from these visits, and encourage any artist or creative person to do the same in this space.
Art4HutanKita is the response for a need for richer emotional and artistic responses to deforestation threat, beyond facts, figures and the news cycle.
