In Conversation with an Artist Activist

During her fly-in fly-out visit to Kuala Lumpur, Dr Anita Ratnam managed to make time for an interview to tell about her cultural activism to help the arts thrive in her part of the woods. She points to the necessity of preserving culture and shares on the need for performing artists to be entrepreneurial and not wait for the government, politicians or even philanthropists to come to their aid.
