Celebrating George Town’s History of Diversity


For the George Town Heritage Celebrations, community is the key word.

The George Town Heritage Celebrations (GTHC) is an annual celebration done to commemorate George Town’s inscription as a Unesco World Heritage Site on July 7, 2008. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the inscription – with 10 times the excitement for the celebrations expected!

The theme for this year is “POTENTIAL – Of the Past, in the Present, for the Future”, which presents heritage as a dynamic subject not only restricted to observations of the past. It encompasses four main objectives, focusing on the passing of cultural knowledge and social values to the next generation as well as sharing them with one another.
