The pandemic might have wiped out the plans for this year’s Ipoh International Art Festival (IIAF). No arts takeover of the Perak state capital, no weekend stream of visitors from other states making a trip to this well-curated festival series, which received positive reviews and an extension last year.

But the show has to go on - albeit - in a more low-key fashion with the IIAF 2021 Pre-Festival, which serves as a preview for next year’s festival.
