Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project 2021: Modern Chinese Poetry Workshop – Seeking Youth Participants

Throughout history, writers have used the lyrical art of poetry to record loves, lives and important events. Though literary styles and tastes have changed over time, poetry remains a powerful tool for self-expression. 

This summer, join us at our Modern Chinese Poetry Workshop to learn more about contemporary styles, and experiment with creative ways of recording the personal stories of senior members of the community. The three-part workshop is conducted in Cantonese and begins with a meet-and-greet session in July, where participants come together to hear the stories of a group of elderly citizens. In August and September, participants take part in a series of seven writing workshops, exploring the unique form and features of modern Chinese poetry and how to craft their own poems based on the personal stories they have heard. In the final part of the process, participants perform their completed pieces. A recording of the performance will be presented at the Jockey Club “Project Silver” Intergenerational Arts Project exhibition and online platform in October and November.

The free-of-charge workshop is open to youth participants who are interested in engaging with the elderly and expressing themselves through modern Chinese poetry. Places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis. To be part of this rewarding creative writing experience, register online on or before 20 July 2021.
