Southern District Literature Day - All About Poetry

13/12/2014

Poetry is all that is worth remembering in life ~ William Hazlitt

In recent years, in collaboration with Southern District Council, YAF has organised a number of art programmes to promote literature and encourage creativity. Through public exhibitions and workshops on flower plaque crafting, sculpting and other skills, locals and visitors have been introduced to inspirational works by famous writers and poets.

This winter, join us for an afternoon at the Aberdeen Promenade to celebrate the art of poetry. Immerse yourself in words and rhymes as you view poetry-inspired sculptures and multimedia installations. Watch calligraphy being written on walls and on the ground, and enjoy poetry reading and dance performances on stage.

Please kindly note that the majority of artworks are in Chinese.
