The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project Cultural Day

18-19/03/2023

Join us on 18 and 19 March for a free, fun Cultural Day weekend at Youth Square in Chai Wan!

Designed to embrace the unique histories and characters of our city’s diverse communities, the Cultural Day weekend – part of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant: stART Up Community Arts Project – showcases artistry and culture from around the world through live performances and creative workshops. Participants can create blessings for their loved ones through Chinese knotting; explore beautiful crafts from Pakistan, India and Africa; get percussive in our handpan, African drumming and lion dance workshops; pick up some glow sticks and explore Japanese Wotagei dance, or practise animal-inspired yoga to calm the mind and body.

All Cultural Day activities are free and suitable for participants aged five and above. Online registration is now available at Popticket. Places are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
