Ocean Art Walk 2015 at Stanley Plaza

“The changes are happening; they're very visible, they're photographable, they're measurable...”  James Balog, "Chasing Ice" filmmaker For the past two years, Emmy-award winning documentary "Chasing Ice" has been screened in 172 countries and on all seven continents, stunning audiences with beautifully-crafted images of some of the world’s biggest glaciers. These powerful pictures are also shocking – revealing irrefutable evidence of human-caused climate change and its impact on life on land and in the ocean.  This March and April at Ocean Art Walk 2015 at Stanley Plaza, artists and young people take "Chasing Ice" as their inspiration to encourage everyone to cherish our waters. Join us for a close-up look at the land and water we all depend on for survival, and discover how climate change is impacting life on Earth and what could happen if we don’t act now.

Jockey Club Community Arts Biennale 2015 - Urban Knitting Teachers Workshop

The city’s first yarn bomber Esther Poon is known for wrapping colourful knitted creations around railings, trees, road signs and fences across Hong Kong, particularly in the streets of Sheung Wan. This playful, guerilla-style street knitting brightens up the city, brings a smile to the faces of those lucky enough to catch a glimpse, and creates interesting juxtapositions with Hong Kong’s shiny, modern architecture.  As part of Jockey Club Community Arts Biennale 2015, we have made it our mission to knit a colourful cover for Lek Yuen Bridge, a pedestrian walkway crossing Shing Mun River!   During the teacher’s workshop, Esther will demonstrate the basic techniques of crocheting. Participating teachers will then receive art materials for each of their students to create an individual crochet patch. The resulting patches will be sewn together and knitted onto the bridge in April for the Biennale… to call it a wrap!

Jockey Club Community Arts Biennale 2015 - Canton Hand Painted Porcelain Teachers Workshop

In the past, hand painted porcelain played an important part in everyday domestic life in China. Today, with increased industrialisation, the traditional techniques of hand painting have become a dying art.  Jockey Club Community Arts Biennale 2015 celebrates the skills of local craftsmen and the beauty of traditional local handicrafts and folk art, including Canton porcelain painting, bamboo crafting, neon sign making and Cantonese opera.  At this teacher’s workshop, Winus Lee, one of the few remaining Canton porcelain painting masters, introduces the history of this artform and the various techniques used in porcelain painting. Participating teachers will receive art materials to use with their students to create their own work. All finished artwork will be showcased at the Biennale exhibition in July.
