wREGA - Malaysian Graphic Designers Association Annual General Meeting & Elections 2008

Calling all graphic designers! If you like kakireka's activities but would like to join an actual professional body for designers in Malaysia, look no further than... wREGA or Wakaf Reka Grafik Malaysia (the one and only association for graphic designers in Malaysia that is recognised by ICOGRADA). Anyway, we share similar goals but wREGA is a registered organisation while kakireka only exist online... for now.

wREGA's been around for 9 years now and will be having their 10th Annual General Meeting this Saturday, 28 June 2008. Incidentally, the meeting will be held at the same venue as kakireka's smalltalk, good old "Ole Cafe" at 48, Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL.

Drop by and find out what lies in the future of design in Malaysia and maybe how you can benefit or contribute as a designer. Membership is open to all design professionals, design students and even associate members (ppl in biz related to design) are welcome to join.

Malaysia is changing rapidly in the aftermath of the 2008 general elections. There is a social awakening among Malaysians about the power the rakyat has and even designers should step up and be counted. Now's the time to get involved and let your voice be heard if you have something to say about the design profession on a national level. Can design be used to provide creative solutions to what ails this beloved country of ours? Racism? Culture drift? Transportation woes? The environment? Effective town-planning?

Instead of just bitching about agency politics or racist politicians or what coulda woulda shoulda, join wREGA now, get into the organising committee and make some serious changes for the betterment of us all. And make design be sexy, be better valued, be useful... before we all drown in the rising prices of everything due to wasted resources and not being able to work together becos we are different.

wREGA 10th AGM -- 28 June 2008 (SAT)

2pm - 6pm
Ole Cafe, Changkat Bukit Bintang, K. L.

Interested, email wREGA today to book your place. Do indicate if you're interested to serve in the organising committee.
