George Town Festival 2015: An exploration of community and humanity


This year’s festival sets out to discover who – and what – we are.

Since its inauguration in 2010, George Town Festival (GTF) has grown into a dynamic month-long event that showcases and highlights a multiplicity of spaces, people and art, as well as acclaimed local and international performances.
