HK Urban Canvas 2018: Exhibition

21/03-17/04/2018

HK Urban Canvas returns to Sham Shui Po, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok!

First launched in 2016, the HK Urban Canvas programme has provided a range of community art activities designed to promote the unique aspects of local cultural and enhance community inclusion. To date these include the successful creation of shutter art for local stores, art education events, cultural tours, exhibitions, and even a mobile app, centred around the neighbourhoods of Wan Chai, Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun.

In 2018, HK Urban Canvas looks at the local culture and crafts of Sham Shui Po, Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok. Along with the creation of more shutter art, we will also launch a new art education programme – a series of artist-led workshops designed to give students a better understanding of community stories and crafts, and inspire them to create neighbourhood-based works in a range of media.

The resulting artwork will be showcased in a free public exhibition from March to April 2018 at Comix Home Base. Please visit www.facebook.com/HKUrbanCanvas for details.
