Opportunity: 14th Johor Bahru Arts Festival, Malaysia

1 Comment

Taking place from 14th April to 1st May 2017, the 14th Johor Bahru Arts Festival provides a stage (well, local cafes and similarly intimate locations) for your project or performance in theatre, dance, music, comedy, visual arts, and more.

This year’s festival theme is ‘In Motion’ in homage to Sungai Segget which flows steadily through the historic heart of the city. In keeping with this theme, the Festival seeks to connect the people of Johor Bahru with the city’s rich cultural heritage through streams of creative possibilities. With skyscrapers mushrooming across the city and new developments appearing before our eyes every second, the arts must move in tandem with the ambition of the city.

What they are looking for

Projects and programmes to enrich the arts festival. Spaces along Jalan Dhoby, Jalan Tan Hiok Nee and Sungai Segget will open up to showcase art in all disciplines, as well as for talks, discussions, and workshops.


Proposals for the 14th Johor Bahru Arts Festival must be received by 30 January, 2017.
