City Momentum Public Art Project

Hoarding art is a popular way to enhance a city environment and one that is used around the world. For the City Momentum Public Art Project, the Development Bureau provided a number of hoardings and invited YAF to work with local artists to beautify our city environment and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong handover. The City Momentum Public Art Project showcases the work of eight local artists and illustrators on eleven hoarding sites around the city. Featuring elements such as local architecture, food, transportation, occupations and attractions, these colourful interpretations of city life in Hong Kong are a vibrant reflection of the city’s diversity!

Spark! Arts Programme for Children at Small Group Homes

Art nourishes and enriches our lives and can change the way we see the world. In 2013 to 2014, YAF implemented the first arts programme for Children at Small Group Homes. The intensive programme used art as a way to encourage participants to recognise their feelings and express their thoughts, helping young people to find their own voice and overcome social and personal inhibitions in a non-judgmental and non-competitive environment. With the generous support of The Swire Group Charitable Trust, this inspiring programme continues next year with a new three-year edition that runs from 2017 to 2019. For the new programme, YAF has designed a series of fun and enriching visual and performing art experiences for over four hundreds youngsters aged between 4 and 18 living in Small Group Homes in Hong Kong.

When two people dance together, the creative possibilities are endless. Led by top local dancemaker Lai Tak-wai, this workshop guides you through the basic inspiration behind contemporary partnering, helping you hone your sensitivity and coordination and explore new personal ways of moving. During the session, you will improve your connection with your partner, and progress from simple exercises of receiving weight and moving as a couple or small group, to more complex exercises that lead gradually to the final partnering combination.
