In 2014, Arts-ED initiated a street interpretation project along Street of Harmony (also known as Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling/ Pitt Street) in George Town by working closely with the local communities. The project is based upon a journey to understand community values and it explores the shared elements of cultural and religious practices of communities along the street. 

The purpose is the project is: 

  • To listen and understand the views and thoughts of the various communities and how they contribute to the cultural and religious life of Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling.

  • To provide visitors and locals with a more memorable and complete experience as they visit the religious sites and walk along this street.

  • To promote a better understanding of the shared common elements among the various cultures and religions.

  • To facilitate artists, cultural and community workers to engage creatively with the local communities.

This project is managed by Arts-ED and supported by Think City.
