It has been a momentous month for Asiik City Festival in Melbourne. Exhibitions, puppet shows, performances, mural collaborations, and workshops! With our final Melbourne event -Ride Bersama and Puppet Show- finishing last night, we thought it would be good to take a breath and look back on what we've done...
