What is The Art Factory

It is the first art festival in Kota Kinabalu that showcases creative minds in arts and crafts to paintings and films all under one roof. Artisans, crafters, writers, painters, activists, filmmakers are all welcomed to set up a booth to introduce and promote their home-grown products, causes or share their stories.

The 1st TAF was organized in December, 2014. It was a huge success, attracting close to 1300 visitors within 2 days. The festival is packed with activity such as film screening, worshops as well as talks by well known artists in the art industry. The star of the event is the 2-day bazaar, where artisans from around the world came and showcased their home grown products.
