Online Sign Language Workshop

​Around the world, sign languages have developed naturally with their own inflections and cultures, just like spoken languages. In our two online Sign Language Workshops: Deaf Culture 101 and A Deaf Storyteller – guided by SLCO Community Resource – Deaf teachers share insight into everyday sign language and how to communicate with Deaf individuals. 


RAW x Unsung Heroes - One Love in Voices

RAW x Unsung Heroes - One Love in Voices is a collaboration between HKYAF’s a cappella team RAW and the Unsung Heroes choir, whose members are all part of Hong Kong’s foreign domestic workers community. Working with experienced music director Ivy Hung, they perform their own rendition of a mash-up of Seasons of Love and the Tagalog classic Isang Mundo, Isang Awit (One World, One Song). Since last November, the singers practised together every Sunday to prepare for the audio and video recording. The resulting work shows the power of music to bring people together regardless of cultural background, language and occupation. Watch now and let music connect us!


Signs of Light

In the short dance and music video Sign of Light, youngsters share their passions and dreams! Working with a deaf teacher from SLCO Community Resources, a group of talented HKYAF dancers gained insight into Cantonese sign language and the life experience and culture of the deaf community in Hong Kong. They then worked with choreographer Malvina Tam to interpret the song She Remembers, He Forgets (哪一天我們會飛), incorporating Cantonese sign language into their moves. The song is sung by HKYAF singers trained by music coach Ivy Hung. The video was created to encourage people to pursue their dreams, regardless of their age, language and ability – and to show that passion is a universal language that transcends words!


Tactile Icon Creation

In these videos, Dr Rico Chan, the founder of Beyond Vision International, introduces a system of tactile visual vocabulary that helps visually impaired people understand complex graphic elements in our environment – and demonstrates how to create tactile icons!


Cantonese Proverbs and Idioms Illustration Poster Design Online Exhibition

Students from five primary and secondary schools – Chang Pui Chung Memorial School, International Christian Quality Music Secondary and Primary School, Munsang College Primary School, SKH Li Fook Hing Secondary School and The Church of Christ in China Kei To Secondary School – worked with artist Candice Keung to create illustrations of fun Cantonese proverbs and learn about local advertising designs from the 1970s and 1980s. To see how the students interpreted the humorous visual possibilities of Cantonese proverbs, visit our online showcase
