MYPAA is a private and independent arts agency that is established to support the development of arts and culture in Malaysia by fostering and facilitating mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships between the public and private sectors and the performing arts industry. Ultimately, MYPAA aims to benefit everyone involved in the making and appreciation of the arts.

Both MYPAA and JKKN also share the same vision of “making arts a way of life”. Their objectives are to raise the profile of the performing arts and to support the growth of our arts and culture in Malaysia.
