The In-Between Arts Festival 2017

Wedged between the George Town Literary Festival and the Penang Island Jazz Festival, the In-between Arts Festival (IbAF) aims to showcase words, food, music and everything in between. IbAF aims to connect people from around the region to experience, explore and collaborate in Penang. It’s truly a festival for Penangites, as much as it is for visitors from near and far.

The In-Between Arts Festival 2017 will be a showcase that unfolds the diversity of culture and religious celebrations in Penang. A creative collision of art and culture presentation that includes performances, traditional trades, traditional games, local food & beverages as well as a pop-up market where bits from each of the activities will reflect genuine culture of the city. The festival will take visitors in exploring the spellbinding beauty of Armenian Park, the cultural anchor that best expresses the atmosphere. For three days, visitors can learn offerings of the most authentic cultural elements and community events at one place. Get “culture-overloaded” at IbAF2017 where you’ll see, learn and be hands-on with some of Penang’s most precious culture and traditional practices.
