Borak Arts Series 2016 was held on 27 and 28 August 2016 as part of George Town Festival. This year’s theme focused on “Bringing Arts Closer to Home”. The conference engaged on how artists and cultural workers can improve and strengthen communities to make a home we can call our own. It examined the role of the arts in conflict resolution and recovery. It dissected the different facets of communities to understand how creativity unleashes internal strength, voice, self expression and a sense of belonging in addition to discussing social impact and evaluating output.
