Cooler than cool: The Cooler Lumpur Festival, KL's hippest literary arts festival, returns this year from June 20 to 22 at Publika.
Kuala Lumpur's hippest literary arts festival returns for its second year with its eye firmly fixed on the future of culture.
Whether the future is going to be apocalyptic or utopian, the fact of the matter is that it’s in our hands and The Cooler Lumpur Festival 2014 is all about heading off into the future “at the speed of thought”.
Happening from June 20 to 22 at Publika in Kuala Lumpur, the literary culture-centred festival takes on the theme #Fast this time around. The festival, which also sports a diverse creative range, is a collaboration between PopDigital, BMW and the British Council.
“We chose this theme because the fasting month is approaching and we thought it will be an interesting play on the word fast,” says Hardesh Singh, the festival’s executive director, tongue-in-cheek. “But more importantly, the underlining theme is rooted in ideas that will move our culture forward,” he adds.
