Be a local and visitor all at once

If thou art an art lover, then make thy way over to Urbanscapes 2017 for the Art for Grabs bazaar. Art for Grabs, an art bazaar mini fest pioneer, brings together creative Malaysians selling homemade art, crafts, books, food and pretty much anything you can dream of—and all for a good cause too!
Grab this opportunity to rediscover our good ol’ KL through the eyes of artists, craft makers, activists, poets, musicians, and other dreamers. The 2-day event officially kicks off this Saturday, 6th of May from 12pm onwards at the Urbanscapes House.

Here’s a quick dive of what to expect:

The first day packs a DIY artists exhibition by Collectives | Individuals, Poetry Open Mic by KL’s emerging spoken word poets, an Activism & Capitalism debate by Projek Dialog, Art for Grabs’ very own open mic session known as Mic for Grabs, and music performances hosted by international poet, Cat Brogan.

The second day brings you a talk show about Trans Malaysians + Trans Allies by Justice for Sisters, a forum about Child Marriage by the G-Blog, a continuation of Mic for Grabs by other performers and Urban Manifestos For A Better Kuala Lumpur by Art for Grabs.
