What About Kuching

Whoever said nothing fun ever happens in Kuching? Get ready for an experience that’s like no other – WAK 2017! This is where the true spirit of Kuching comes alive, through a mutual love for the arts, culture, heritage and community. So keep your eyes open, because this October is going to be all about Kuching.  

Our Story

Kuching. A vibrant city in the heart of Borneo that’s renowned for its culture, crafts and cuisine. This is where old world splendour meets new world charm. Where locals are proud to call home, and visitors who yearn for more cannot wait to return. Again, and again.

To celebrate this city’s abundant yet distinct charm, the local community has come together to present What About Kuching, a tribute to the spirit of Kuching. This first-ever month-long festival is where the arts, culture, heritage and community of Kuching take centre stage. After all, what better way to appreciate a city than through the eyes of a local?

Our Purpose

What About Kuching’s mission is to celebrate the arts, culture, heritage and community to a global audience thereby creating greater appreciation and support of these amongst the local community.
