About Event

#Update POST COP26 

Thank you for your support to bringing voices of Peninsula  Malaysia's Indigenous youth and women to COP26 in Glasgow UK 

Weaving Hopes for the Future is an art and cultural response to the climate degradation and climate injustice around us, focusing on creating a space for Orang Asli (Indigenous) youths and women to empower them to participate meaningfully in climate action locally and globally.

What have we exhibited in COP26 in Glasgow?

We have exhibited the art installation and creative storytelling co-produced by 11 Indigenous women and youth in two full weeks around Glasgow in civil society side events during COP26. A film screening was also run in Glasgow during Loss and Damage day at COP26. The creative art tells the journey of the Indigenous youth and women in this project. 

What is next for Weavinghopes?

We are in the midst of sending the art installation back home and plan for community screenings next year ! Get updates from our social medias!

Where does your money go to ?

We have set an initial target of £ 3,000 or RM 17,000.  To date we have collected RM 14,015 !

The funds have gone to exhibition setup and logistics in the UK, exhibition fees, equipment, materials, digital tools, and coordination. Setting up an art exhibition is no easy feat during this pandemic, especially when the items need to be flown and transported from Malaysia to the UK and reach Glasgow for reconstruction. Hence, we would like to say many thanks to our supporters ! Watch the updates of our journey in our Instagram !

This fundraising will officially close on 30th November 2021. For those that have donated, we will send via email a mini report tracking the finance of the logistics by early January. Please support us in extending this project next year !

Thank you !

What makes this initiative unique  important ?

  1. This is the first participation from Indigenous People from Peninsula Malaysia from the civil society in UNFCCC COP. Read about COP26 https://ukcop26.org/

  2. This project is a Malaysia-UK collaboration to create spaces for Indigenous People of Malaysia to participate in the climate movement.

  3. This project hopes to engage the general public and COP 26 delegates, climate change, and Indigenous activists, artists, and decision-makers on the struggles faced by the Malaysian Indigenous People and how Indigenous empowerment is a key for climate solutions, and pressure for climate finance to be delivered for Loss and Damage.

Why do your support and solidarity matter?

Weaving is the process of combining and connecting one material to the other to form a strong structure. In a way, weaving connects us all, allowing us to reach out to others and build partnerships, for a better future.
