Sheraton Hong Kong Presents: “My Sham Shui Po Hidden Gems” Art Exhibition

27/09-01/10/2017; 02-15/10/2017

For many people, just three things come to mind when they think of Sham Shui Po –budget electronic goods, craft materials and tasty food. But how do the young people living in Sham Shui Po perceive their neighbourhood?

Over the past 18 years, Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel & Towers has been a continuous supporter of YAF’s art programmes, with staff volunteering their time and effort to provide young people with the chance to experience the fun of creating art. This summer, professional YAF artist Violet Shum partners with Sheraton volunteers to lead underprivileged youngsters from the Music Children Foundation to embark on a journey to explore their unique perceptions of Sham Shui Po’s hidden gems through visual art. Completed artworks will be showcased in two public exhibitions from September to October.
