23-24 JUNE 2012: Road trip to Penang -HMM-Armenian Street Project-Georgetown Festival

ACG has been invited to participate in Georgetown Festival (GTF) 2012 - Handmade Market.

Handmade Market in conjunction with Armenian Street Project
Date: 23 Jun 2012 (Saturday)
Time: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Venue: Yap Kongsi Temple Hall, Armenian Street, George Town, Penang

The discussion about the Handmade Market (HMM) started since last month & some of our ACG members were very excited to participate in the HMM event.  Others wanted to but had over pre-arranged events to participate or work consignments to finish. From KL to Penang, ACG members will travel all the way up by chartered tour bus to join the HMM and stay overnight.

Next day, we will go for some artsy sight-seeing in Penang - visit GTF exhibitions & wall paintings in various locations, check out caricature sculptures around Georgetown's UNESCO Heritage sites.

Here is an information about the event.

The Handmade Market on Armenian Street will offer a range of exciting artisan items created by talented local craftspeople and designers.

About George Town Festival (GTF)

George Town Festival (GTF) is a month-long celebration of art, music, theatre, dance opera and film to commemorate George Town's inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage listing on 7 July, 2008. Each year since 2009, GTF transforms George Town into an exciting and unique platform for the arts, heritage and culture.

The unique appeal of the festival lies in its well-balanced blend of local cultural performance and events with cutting edge international performances. For centuries, Penang was renowned as an international commercial gateway. GTF was created to put George Town and Penang back on the world stage as an international boutique destination for art and culture. International media giants such as The New York Times, CNNgo, Wall Street Journal have already covered the festival and the buzz for this year's festival is stronger than ever.
