The Anak-Anak Kota Clubhouse is a shophouse on Cannon Street, within the Heritage Enclave of George Town. Anak-Anak Kota, or Children of the City, is a project by Arts-Ed (Arts in Heritage Education Program), a program spearheaded by Janet Pillai, a lecturer at Universiti Sains Malaysia. The purpose of the Anak-Anak Kota project is to expose young people, particularly children living in the inner city of George Town, to the cultural and historical heritage around them. Anak-Anak Kota got its start in November 2001 while Arts-Ed was founded in 1999.
The children and young people participating in Anak-Anak Kota has embarked on several projects such as the publishing of the Kota Kita Newspaper, where they document the culture and trade of George Town. The children have also created brochures and walking maps of George Town as well as Balik Pulau.
Through Anak-Anak Kota, young people are exposed to cultural performing arts, traditional games, songs, dances, drama. The premises at Cannon Street, the Anak-Anak Kota Clubhouse, acts as the gathering place for children and young people participating in Anak-Anak Kota programs.
