George Town Festival
 
George Town Festival
George Town, Penang, Malaysia
Early August
Description
George Town Festival is a month-long festival that has turned into a proudly Penang arts institution. From its start as a series of arts and culture events in celebration of George Town’s listing as a UNESCO Heritage Site in 2008, George Town Festival was mooted and celebrated its first inauguration in 2010. Since then, we have had the privilege of hosting spectacular events spanning the arts – from world-class performances to cross-cultural creative collaborations, experimental art, traditional and contemporary performing arts, as well as exciting local community initiatives and public installations. Our mission is to become the platform for culture and the arts in South-East Asia, with a focus on George Town’s unique perspectives. For the festival month, the city becomes a canvas where performers and audiences transform spaces within it with venues ranging from auditoriums to five-foot ways, colonial shop-houses to sidewalk galleries. The festival continues to offer the best possible experience through our core beliefs of Collaboration, Community, Reinvention and Accessibility, intriguing audiences with our various free and ticketed events.
