‘Dasein’(‘da : za-in ), a connotation derived from German philosophy, has timelessly inspired creative thinkers to discover and redefine one¡¯s true being and existence. With that ideal in mind, Dasein Academy of Art was established in 1996 by a team of avid educators and professionals from the creative industry. Aspired to revive the role of creative education from stereotyped qualifications back to the cultivation of individual distinction, an aspired team dedicated to personal enrichment was formed.
Driven by this ingenuity, Dasein Academy believes that creative education is more than just merely a skill or job-market-oriented curriculum. After all, it is through the path of creative thinking and aesthetic learning that one discovers the beauty of one¡¯s existence; and that, is a fulfillment of a lifetime.
To be a local art and design education hub that grows in sync with the world.
– To build a knowledge platform in art and design that integrates educators and industry professionals locally and internationally
– To explore on the local multi-cultural background as a competitive education resource in art and design.
– To continuously fulfill the changing needs of the creative industry.
Dato (Dr.) Haji Khalid Yunus ( Chairman of Dasein )
