    The presence of Deputy Permanent Secretary (Culture) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Dr Siti Norkhalbi binti Haji Wahsalfelah as the guest of honour at the Kolej International Graduate Studies (KIGS) 12th VIBE Art Exhibition and Media Week 2022 symbolised the support in the institution’s activities for the development of youth in the country, and motivates the college to continue produce creative and innovative skilled human resources needed for the realisation of the Brunei Vision 2035.

    This was said by the college’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Haji Azaharaini bin Haji Mohd Jamil at the college’s campus in Kiulap on Monday.

    The exhibition not only promotes the institution and its programmes but also aims to produce youth with the skills and knowledge in support of the development of the creative industries in the Sultanate.

    This year, the annual event showcased creative works from students across all four of the college’s faculties, divided into the VIBE Art Exhibition to showcase creative art; and Media Week for broadcasting and media-related works.

    The Media Week 2022 comprises exhibitions including Media Museum and a Gaming and Film Festival.

    Themed ‘The New Generation’, students under the Faculty of Multimedia and Broadcasting displayed their creativity and talent in film-making.

    This year, the exhibition for the first time is also displaying 20 artworks by students from St George’s School. These students were invited to provide a learning experience on a public platform and allow them to interact with college students and improve their work through the exchange of ideas.

    Teacher Afiqah Hanum binti Haji Murni shared that the 31 participants are Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11 students studying art and design.

    They created their artworks using mixed media on a canvas. She especially encouraged the Year 11 students to participate as it is their final secondary year, hence the event is an opportunity to get exposure and build interest, as well as appreciate each other’s art.

    These students created their own interpretation of the theme and took two months to finish their artworks.

    “This is a good platform for them to learn how people criticise, evaluate and judge their works so they can learn their mistakes, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and how to improve.

    “The event is open to the public and we hope that the public will be able to witness the creativity and talents of the students and participate in the activities during the event,” she said.
