Experience the best of Singapore and Penang through music, visual and traditional art, film, food right from the bustling George Town Festival.

ConneXions: Passion Made Possible is a cultural showcase that will take centre stage at this year’s George Town Festival from 31st August 2018 to 2nd September 2018. The twist? It’s a joint presentation by the George Town Festival and Singapore’s Tourism Board and National Arts Council!

The three-day showcase will highlight the strong ties between Singapore and Penang, which have both been honoured by UNESCO as a Creative City of Design and a World Heritage Site respectively.

“Singapore has always been a strong collaborative partner with George Town Festival, with programmes almost every other year since 2010. We sincerely appreciate STB and NAC for partnering with us for this project and hope we can continue our Penang x Singapore platform to showcase talents for both countries.” says Mr Joe Sidek, Festival Director of George Town Festival.

“This event is especially meaningful because it builds upon the deep cultural connections between Singapore and Malaysia,” said Kenneth Kwok, Assistant Chief Executive (Planning & Engagement) of the National Arts Council, Singapore.

The ConneXions: Passion Made Possible showcase will take place in 5 venues across George Town. Swipe through for a look at what awaits you!
