What is Thiscene.com?

Thiscene.com is a website for connecting the creative industries across ASEAN. We want to connect with individuals and communities and share their stories with the region.

Thiscene.com consists of 2 main components:

Editorial—featuring articles from contributors and podcasts from hosts from around Southeast Asia.

Community—a purpose-built social community that enables members to connect with one another.

The site was founded on August 1, 2016, launched on December 15, 2016, and is run by a team out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Who’s behind it?

The team:

  • Brian Johnson Lowe: Founder
  • Tshiung Han See: Co-founder & Editor-in-Chief
  • Vinna Law: Community Manager
  • Putrina Mohamed Rafie: Social Media Manager

Who’s paying for it?

Thiscene.com is run entirely out of our own bootstrapped funds, for the greater good.

Where did the idea come from?

The original idea for Thiscene.com came from an event that Brian ran called Connect2Create.
