Join George Town Festival instead of complaining, Malay groups told

Susan Loone  |  Published:  |  Modified:

George Town Festival director Joe Sidek has urged local performers to come forward and take part in next year’s event, which will focus on the theme of Asean.

The deadline to send in proposals for George Town Festival 2017 (GTF2017) is Jan 15.

Joe said there have been many complaints about the lack of local or Malay programmes for the past seven years since the programme was started in 2008, after George Town was bestowed with the Unesco World Heritage Site award.
