Director's Message

Welcome to the Cultural Centre, University of Malaya. Since the beginning of time, human beings have asked important questions about the meaning of our existence and expressed ourselves through arts and culture. Today, we continue to explore the varieties of human experiences, in all its complexities, through the performing and visual arts programmes offered here at the University of Malaya. 

At the Cultural Centre, we value critical thinking, scholastic excellence, practical learning and creative imagination. We are also invested in creating a suitable environment your creative inquiry. These are aimed at broadening your intellectual and imaginative horizon. Our graduates are provided with holistic and transferable skill-sets through a close appreciation of the fine arts tradition of the East and West. Many of our students have gone on to do wonderful things, as artists, curators, entrepreneurs, consultants, civil servant, teachers, designers, cultural workers and many more.

Our academic staff are not only scholars but also industry experts in their respective fields. Many of them are renowned nationally and internationally. We are committed to inspire you to explore deeper questions that inform the way we understand the world today. We want you to become an independent thinker and do-er.

Not only will you gain an understanding of the global debates on culture through a critical lens, you will also gain hands-on experiences and practical problem-solving skills. We place strong emphasis on getting our students to engage, creatively and imaginatively, with the world. Our support services and teaching faculty are here to help your realise your ambitions.  

We look forward to you being part of the cultural centre's community.
