After a limited hybrid presentation in June due to pandemic restrictions, the George Town Festival (GTF) wraps up its 12th edition this year with two arts programmes comprising Nine Days Eight Exhibitions and Nine Days Eight Shows from Nov 20-28 and Dec 4-12, respectively.

Nine Days Eight Exhibitions brings art into everyday lives with exhibitions and showcases at cafes, shopping malls and other selected venues. These were some of the art exhibitions that were postponed earlier this year because of MCO 3.0.
