The Tuyang Initiative

The Tuyang Initiative describe themselves as a community-led arts management company, with a dream. Established in 2017, this Miri-based award-winning social enterprise is focused on Dayak cultural heritage, and aims to generate meaningful livelihoods for cultural custodians, and lead efforts in its continuity. This is done by facilitating capacity building and participation into the creative and cultural industries through strategic industry partnerships. Founded by father -daughter team John Wan Usang and Juvita Tatan Wan, the team also want their culture and traditions to continue well into the future – and thrive. The team have been invited to perform at the World Music & Dance Festival in Japan in August 2024, and are currently raising funds to get there. We speak to Juvita to find out more about their work and plans.
