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 2017, a tribute to the spirit of Kuching. This first-ever month-long festival is where the arts, culture and lifestyle of Kuching take centre stage. After all, what better way to appreciate a city than through the eyes of a local?

Our Purpose

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