HK Urban Canvas: Mobile Application

To let audiences view the shutter art works at any time, the HK Urban Canvas project includes a mobile app with an augmented reality function that allows you to view the works on your smartphone even when shops are open and the shutters are not visible! The app also lets you share the art works on social media. With the app you can check the location of each shutter, read about the artistic concept behind each work, learn neighbourhood stories, and follow suggested cultural tour routes – each of which is supported by a GPS system that makes it easy to locate checkpoints. The HK Urban Canvas mobile app will be available for free download from Apple Store and Google Play from May 2017.

Theatre skills are a powerful teaching tool. They can be used to promote cooperation and empathy, develop decision-making abilities, facilitate the exchange of knowledge, build self-confidence and self-esteem, and encourage creativity and imagination.   This workshop will show teachers new ways of incorporating physical activities and alternative methodologies into their teaching and classroom management practices to help inspire students of all ages and backgrounds!   Heather Cooper is a Hong Kong-based actor, producer and playwright. She has worked as Drama Co-ordinator at the Diocesan Boys’ School and has created inter-school drama productions that have been recognised at the Hong Kong Drama Festival.
