The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022: Cantonese Idioms Illustration Teacher Workshop

If you speak Cantonese, chances are you know the saying: “hugging the Buddha’s leg in an emergency” (臨急抱佛腳 / lam gap bou fat goek) meaning “seeking help at the last moment”. Like this one, many Cantonese idioms blend folk wisdom with a hint of sarcasm and suggest comic visual images. Join us in January to find out more and explore the humorous visual possibilities of idioms.

In this fun teachers’ workshop, artist Candice Keung takes inspiration from local advertising designs from the 1970s and 1980s and illustrator Ah To’s comic books “The Great Canton and Hong Kong Proverbs” and “Cantonese.jpg”, and guides primary and secondary school teachers to create illustrations of Cantonese idioms.

The workshop is part of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022 organised by HKYAF and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust. This free-of-charge workshop is designed to help primary and secondary school teachers pass on new skills and enhance young people’s understanding and appreciation of traditional Cantonese idioms and local Cantonese culture. Completed student artwork will be collected and featured in a public exhibition in mid-March 2022. If you are interested in taking part, please fill in the before 15 December 2021. Successful registration will be confirmed by email. Limited quota, first come, first served.
