What is creativity, art and culture, without literacy? Urbanscapes 2011 will again, bring you something new – a Books Bazaar!
Frinjan is a loose collective artists and connoisseurs of art and culture. The word 'Frinjan' was taken from the English word, 'fringe'.
Frinjan’s objective is to organize art and cultural activities, which are semi-commercial to inject literary, cultural and social development into our society.
Frinjan employs art as a medium, message and motivation to call to attention important socio-political issues affecting our daily lives, often collaborating with local Non-Government Organizations, art community and educational institutions.
It is also notable that Frinjan utilises arts as medium for young people to address the current problems they face in their daily lives.
Frinjan Books Bazaar in Urbanscapes will feature Distro Buku, Matahari Books, Fixi, Sang Freud Press, Silverfish, ZI Publications, Sindiket Soljah, Dubook Press and many more books, which are not always available at our local bookstores. There will also be readings, author appearances and slam poetry.
This is definitely an event not to be missed by book lovers! It just gets more and more exciting isn’t it?!
