However, if you look beyond the selfie scene, Atas/Not Atas also has a list of public programs, including workshops and art lectures.

On June 4, Pangrok Sulap will feature a woodcut workshop, while Snapshot Portraits by Kanta Studio and a Mee Goreng Miniature Workshop by Miniarture Concepts are sure to catch the eye of the curious.

The weekend’s flagship talk “North Borneo Baskets – A Discovery”, presented by Jennifer Linggi, stalwart of the Sabahan art scene, is something not to be missed this Saturday at 2pm.
