There's no denying that our local arts scene has been booming in the recent years. The public's appreciation for art has increased immensely.
Urbanscapes is the longest running creative arts festival in Malaysia. Now in its 16th year the festival will spread across three weekends in various parts of the city’s historic core-taking advantage of KL’s glorious cityscape, and complementing it with some creativity.
Here's what #TeamCLEO is totally looking forward to.
