ASPIRE Programme

ASPIRE Programme

In June 2023, Brooke Museums launched its ASPIRE programme aimed at upskilling youths in juvenile detention in the art of Sarawak keringkam.

The Trust continues its work through the generosity of our supporters and is reliant on donations to fund its projects

Brooke Museums identified the opportunity to converge two key issues facing today’s society – the potential loss of intangible cultural heritage (in this case, the art of keringkam) and life’s challenges facing some of our youth and thus ASPIRE was conceived.  Sponsored by Yayasan Hasanah and led by Brooke Museums, the ASPIRE programme aims to preserve the art of keringkam to minimise the risk of its decline through training 50 youths from local institutions over a 24-month period.
