Sheraton Hong Kong Presents: “Dare to Dream” Youth Portrait Exhibition
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined." Henry David Thoreau
This summer, professional YAF artists partner with staff volunteers from Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers to lead underprivileged youngsters from The Hub Hong Kong Children and Youth Centre on an extraordinary journey to express their hopes and dreams through art.
Professional dancer Kayuen Kwok will first lead a drama workshop to motivate the youngsters to look at their dreams through role play and improvisation. The young participants will then work with professional illustrator Kiki to create illustrative icons, symbols and drawings that depict their dreams, and with a YAF photographer to capture a self-portrait. The resulting photographs and illustrations will be combined to create a beautiful series of images that asks all of us to “Dare to Dream”!
Over the past 16 years, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers has generously supported YAF’s art programmes, with staff volunteers giving their time and lending a hand to help a wide range of teenage participants experience the fun of creating art.
