GTWHI LaCaLa Discovery Walk
Organised by George Town World Heritage Inc (GTWHI), this free guided walk will cover fascinating stories and facts about heritage streets like Lebuh Acheen, Lebuh Armenian and Lebuh Cannon. For over two centuries, these areas were dubbed as Penang's melting pot for trading, forging close trading relations, cooperation and inter-dependence between various groups in George Town's trading port. At the end of the tour, you'll get to take home newly produced reading material on Lebuh Acheen and Lebuh Armenian. Early reservation and punctuality are a must. Tour limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
Pesta Pulau Pinang 2014
The school holidays are here and it's time to take the kids out for a day at the Euro Fun Park where there's exciting carnival attractions like the Super Jet, Challenger, Skyrider and games stalls.
Armenian Street Got Talent
Echoing other talent-based festivals around town, Armenian Street Got Talent presents a similar talent show format every week. Talented Penangites are expected to congregate on Lebuh Armenian every Saturday (for a three-month trial run) to showcase what they've got on an open stage. If you're into acting, singing or performing, sign up to stand a chance to take home the competition's crown. If you prefer to be part of the audience instead, cheer on your favourites while nibbling on Nyonya pastries, cakes and more from nearby food stalls.
Penang Buskers Festival
In conjunction with Occupy Beach Street, buskers will be performing on Lebuh Pantai and Lebuh Armenian every Saturday and Sunday of this month to enliven the project which closes the street for family and community activities for all to be a part of.
Retrospective of Cheung Pooi Yip
Penang State Art Gallery honours Penangite Cheung Pooi Yip, a self-taught artist known for his oil and acrylic works. Cheung’s artworks document the everyday lifestyle of people around him and nature. Viewers will be able to see the evolution of his style as he switches from painting the outdoors to indoor studio experimentations.
One Point Five Art Exhibition
Brought together by students of The One Academy Penang, check out their collective artworks at the 'One Point Five' art exhibition. The exhibition revolves around the fleeting moments of happiness and sadness, as a single moment is only worth one minute and 30 seconds. The idea is to grasp the 1.5 in anyone or anything that 'unexpectedly happened', but in a remarkable way to create a moment that's worth witnessing and remembering.
