The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022 - I Am…

28/03-09/04/2022

 I Am…

"I Am..." , as part of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project 2022 , explores mother language and identity through music, dance, drama and arts and crafts videos. The works include I Am… , Playwriting Programme: Story Weavers, Ink in Motion, I Am… Calligraphy Portrait Creation and WhatsApp Slang Stickers. Watch the entire series here or scroll down to explore the video playlists by category.


"I Am..." 



The "I Am..." Spoken Word x Dance Short Film Series celebrates the significance of our mother tongue. Over a three-month period, a group of HKYAF talents worked with professional writer Becky Baker, choreographer Nikki Cheung, and filmmakers Annie Yan and Eugene Wong to create nine spoken-word pieces exploring the relationship between our mother tongue and our self-identity.


Playwriting Programme: Story Weaves​



In the Playwriting Programme: Story Weaves, a talented group of HKYAF youth playwrights worked with experienced scriptwriter Melody Yuen to craft their own short skits celebrating the diversity of Cantonese slang. Three of the resulting skits – PeterThe Sun is Going to Set and David Hockney– were also filmed. Let’s take a look at the amazing work of our young writers now! 


Ink in Motion

In our Ink in Motion workshops, young HKYAF talents worked with experienced writer and poet Kenneth Tsang to craft original poems based on themes of identity and mother tongues. The poems were interpreted by a group of HKYAF dancers, who were guided by professional choreographer Emily Lui, videographer Ifan Yu and animator Nico Cheung to create three ink-inspired dance videos, incorporating elements of Chinese calligraphy into the dance moves.


I Am… Calligraphy Portrait Creation

I Am… Calligraphy Portrait Creation is a self-exploration activity. Simply download the worksheet and explore your personality, personal attributes, hobbies and dreams. Once you have the words that describe you, artist Marka Mak will show you how to create a self-portrait by transforming these words with different colours, forms and shapes.


WhatsApp Slang Stickers

​Cantonese slang moves fast-changing in response to popular culture, current events and trends. Taking inspiration from popular expressions derived from movies, TV series and online memes, graphic designer Eden Fong has created a series of WhatsApp Slang Stickers. Don’t “Zi fei” (line your own pockets) – download the stickers for free and share them with your non-Cantonese-speaking friends! The stickers are available in Chinese and English.
