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.

The app includes four districts and seven tour routes on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. With the app you can check the location of the forty shutter artworks, read about the artistic concepts behind each work, learn neighbourhood stories, and follow your own pace to walk along the suggested cultural tour routes – each of which is supported by a GPS system that makes it easy to locate checkpoints.

The updated HK Urban Canvas mobile app is now available for free download from App Store and Google Play!

Many young people in Hong Kong experience bullying at school and among peers. But we can combat this by helping children develop empathy, and by providing them with safe environments where they can express their concerns, develop self-confidence, and learn how to stand up for themselves and each other.
