Promoting cultural harmony through photos

The Malaysian culture, cuisine, lifestyle and harmonious spirit were the focus of the exhibits displayed by the full-time students at the Photo Exhibition held in the main campus today.

A total of 21 groups of students pooled their resources together to present their best work at the exhibition titled ‘Ethnic Relations in Malaysia’.

The project was organised by Lecturer Rabikha Hasni from the School of Humanities & Social Sciences (SHSS) as part and parcel of the students’ assignment for the MPU3113/03 Hubungan Etnik course. It was designed to be a team effort of the students from different ethnic backgrounds to produce their final project photo and descriptive write-up.

On hand to present the award certificate to the winners at the Photo Exhibition was Assoc Prof Dr S Nagarajan, the Dean of the School.
