Dia Guild presents a showcase of Southeast Asian craft creations, from minaudières featured in Crazy Rich Asians to jewellery made of upcycled metals from the Vietnam War. This immersive exhibition spotlights artisans who fuse heritage craftsmanship, modern design and modes of storytelling to celebrate the region’s vibrant history and culture. Discover unique objects, art installations and the real people behind them.

Founded by three Malaysian friends, Dia Guild is an online platform built on cultural appreciation that aims to change the narrative around Southeast Asia. Their curation of fashion and homeware show that goods from the region are not just mass-produced or at the expense of workers’ rights, as the portrayal has long been. Instead, independent brands and artisans are contemporising craftsmanship while employing slow and ethical production. These exquisitely made items are worthy of a discerning global audience. Beyond beautiful things, Dia Guild also shares the personal stories and cultural context behind each item and its artisans.

Please register your interest via the exhibition’s Eventbrite page.
