Event Details

Sarawak, the largest state in Malaysia is home to multi-ethnic groups and more than 45 different dialects. The vast diversity of their history, indigenous knowledge, and cultures fused with the remnants of the Brooke’s era has resulted in unique heritage traces that Sarawakians are proud of. Reaching a hundred-year-old, Fort Long Akah is one of the endangered forts that needs protection and awareness. Using virtual reality and storytelling, this talk investigates the intangible and tangible elements of Long Akah from local Baram community and to explore the use of interactive experience in cultural heritage education
