KLPAC Reopens With A Boost From MR D.I.Y.
There is a distinct air of excitement and celebration in the arts and entertainment community these days – the industry has finally been given the go-ahead to open up under the National Recovery Plan, after months in lockdown.
Leading the charge to show their support of this milestone is MR D.I.Y., welcoming the news by contributing a selection of personal protective equipment to the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre [KLPAC], to boost its reopening plans. The contribution includes face marks for adults and children, face shields, as well as antibacterial hand wipes and disinfectants.
Announcing the contribution, MR D.I.Y. Vice President of Marketing, Andy Chin said, “It has been a challenge for everyone in the arts and entertainment community to keep the arts alive through the pandemic. We are really glad that the rules have been relaxed to offer live performances, and want to play our part in ensuring the arts community returns onstage focused on delivering their best performances, without having to worry about the safety of audiences and venues.
“MR D.I.Y. and KLPAC have a bit of shared history – we both opened our doors in 2005. So it makes absolute sense that we should support the reopening of their doors,” he added.
Welcoming the contribution, KLPAC Co-Founder Dato’ Dr. Faridah Merican said, “We are thrilled to finally return to the stage — our audiences have missed us, and we have missed them. A healthy dose of the arts is exactly what the country needs now, to celebrate the return to some normalcy, and also to find relief from this devastating year. It is like a soothing balm to uplift and heal us as we recover. This contribution from MR D.I.Y. is both timely and useful as we make every effort to adhere to the SOPs to ensure that we reopen safely and responsibly to keep everyone safe. We hope to welcome you back at the theatre so please come join us as soon as you can!”
