The Kuala Lumpur International Arts Festival – also known as DiverseCity – first exploded onto the regional cultural scene in September 2015.
Held for 5 weeks every year across multiple venues in Kuala Lumpur and greater KL, the ambitious program of performing and visual arts in each year of DiverseCity will showcase the complex, rich and nuanced diversity of Malaysia and explore our close ties and deep relationship with ASEAN.
This community-driven initiative would not have been possible without the support of the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur and City Hall.
