"GWKL 2018 ‘Luminary Features’ focus, provided an insightful, polished and ultra-exciting foray into the hearts and minds of a special group of creative people for the art-loving public of Kuala Lumpur.

GWKL goes from strength to strength, providing innovative programs while embracing collegial and inspiring inter-disciplinary groups of people who come together as one mind, to promote the arts and KL as a world class city of creativity. ”
