International Conference of Applied and Creative Arts 2020
17 - 18 AUGUST 2020, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The International Conference on Applied and Creative Arts 2020 (ICACA) marks the sixth conference after 2006, 2008, 2011, 2015 and 2017. This conference is the flagship event for the Faculty of Applied and Creative Arts (FACA), Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) to provide a public space for intellectual discourse that brings together all our faculty members with scholars, artists, and practitioners of art from various local and international backgrounds. In addition, the conference also serves as a platform for scholars and researchers to establish network and relationship with art enthusiasts, art agencies, creative industries, non-governmental organisations, the public, and higher education institutions within and outside the country. Once again, our Faculty is proud to organise the 6th ICACA 2020 with primary sponsorship from PETRONAS Malaysia.
The conference aims to achieve three main objectives, namely;
- To be a forum for educators, researchers, designers, policymakers, implementers, artists, students, and community leaders to meet and discuss various issues concerned with public arts
- To share insights, discoveries, and new explorations in aspects of research, work process, management, and marketing of diverse genres of arts through journal publications
- To continue FACA’s efforts as an art school which shows her continued support for art practices through conferences and scholarly research as well as impactful publications
