My Friends and I decided to get a stall At Little Penang Street Market yesterday. We shared 2 tables between the 3 of us. It made it more fun as a group activity and less like a chore. It was the first time I was showcasing my new trishaw totes and the handmade cards.
Little Penang Street Market is a showcase of arts, crafts and live performances held every last Sunday of the month at Upper Penang Road.
Little Penang Street Market is a non-profit making community venture, organised by a small volunteer committee. It is organised under the umbrella of Penang Arts Council, a registered society founded in 1954.
The Little Penang Street Market was founded in July 2006 with a grant from the Institute for Cultural Enterprise, New York. Its establishment in the first year was spearheaded by Lestari Heritage Network. From the beginning it has been our philosophy to establish a “market place” for cultural entrepreneurs. Artists, musicians and entrepreneurs need access to their audience and customers, while the public wants to discover a diversity of talent and products.
By providing a “market place”, we thereby create a space for cultural incubation and creative evolution – entrepreneurs can meet their public and get real feedback on what they have to offer.
