HK Urban Canvas: Exhibition

24/05-12/06/2017

Our HK Urban Canvas community art project brings together artists and students to create twenty works of shutter art that reflect the close relationship between communities, residents and local culture. Since the project began, the work has received a lot of positive feedback.

In March, to bring the project to a wider audience, we launched a series of youth art education programmes that help students and artists engage with people working in different industries. After learning about their stories, participants create artworks inspired by what they have heard and seen.

The works created by the artists and the students will be showcased in a free public exhibition from 24 May to 12 June at Comix Home Base.
