More information about free exhibition guided tours and workshops

Launched in 2017, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant:  stArt Up Community Arts Project is a “creative aging” series of visual and performing arts activities that engages across generations.

Designed to give elderly community residents access to the arts through a range of artist-led events, the series brings together young participants, senior citizens and artists for enjoyable art-making activities. Working together, participants create artwork that helps the community rethink their perceptions of “the elderly”.

The creative results of the experience are showcased in events such as “Every Note Counts”, a door-to-door music performance for elderly residents who live alone and have low mobility; the “Young at Heart” photo shoot featuring a group of youthful elderly models; the animation work “This Wonderful Journey Called Life” and radio play “We Love, We Speak”; as well as the “Treasure of Memories” exhibition, featuring clay relief art created to reflect the stories shared during the experience. Join us at the showcase and see just how much there is to share!

Small and versatile, the ukulele has become one of Hong Kong’s favourite choices of musical instrument. With just four strings, it is easy to learn, and once you master a handful of chords you can play hundreds of songs!

Do you spend your day in an office cubicle? Are you driven crazy by the freezing air-conditioning or lift doors that close in your face as you’re rushing for lunch or to get home? Do you need a translator some days just to get through the office jargon, the conference calls, the never-ending meetings…
