How has COVID-19 Affected the Arts in Sabah and Sarawak?

One of the many industries hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Movement Control Order has been the arts - with public events, gatherings, and opportunities for travel being limited, many arts practitioners have been struggling to both create art and to make a living. This situation is further exacerbated in Sabah and Sarawak, where the lack of access, connectivity, and accessibility affects life beyond just the arts sphere. As we honour Malaysia Day 2020, we learn how the pandemic has impacted arts practitioners in Sabah and Sarawak, by speaking with The Tuyang Initiative co-founder Juvita Tatan Wan, and Emmanuel Chee, former president, Society of Performing Arts Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
