What a week to explore, open your mind, and meet new (and cool) people. This weekend, we have the sold-out Good Vibes Festival taking place at Gohtong Jaya, so if you’re stuck in the city with no concrete plans, we’ve got your sorted. Leonardo Da Vinci’s works come to digital life at the National Art Gallery for just one month, the co-working space Worq is screening two popular, impactful TED Talks, Professor Dato’ Dr. Ghulam-Sarwar Yousof shares insight into traditional theatre and finally, put those pesky medical myths we see on social media to rest at The Good Doctors festival.

 

1. Leonardo Opera Omnia

High definition, true-to-size digital paintings of Leonardo Da Vinci will be displayed right here in Kuala Lumpur. 17 of the artist's paintings, which today are located in various locations and museums around the world are to be expected, commemorating the life of Da Vinci 500 years since his death in 1519. Thank heavens for augmented reality! The exhibition is open daily from 10am to 6pm.
