Art@Government Buildings 2013-14
 
Presented by the Home Affairs Bureau
Organised by the Art Promotion Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Supported by the Home Affairs Department and Hongkong Post
Programme Coordinator : Community Art Network
 
Over the past three years, the "Art@Government Buildings" (AGB) project has seen nine local artists create works of art in different media – from sculptures, art installations and paintings to comics, videos and interactive multimedia installations – to enliven government buildings in Queensway, Wanchai, North Point, To Kwa Wan, Cheung Sha Wan, Lai Chi Kok, Tsuen Wan, Sha Tin and Tseung Kwan O. Now in its fourth year, the project has extended the exhibition venues from administrative offices to four government buildings that provide different services. The General Post Office, Queen Elizabeth Stadium, Hung Hom Community Hall and Sha Tin Town Hall are now decorated with works by this year's selected artists, who set out to tell the public about the people, events and memories connected with these buildings and the neighbourhood as well as to express their own thoughts and ideas through the display of their art.
 
To introduce the ideas and creative processes behind the works, guided tours are provided for the public and schools, and a series of workshops for children and parents, school teachers and students as well as art lovers and local residents will also be launched soon. Part of the programmes like "Artlink", "Mini Kite Making Workshop" and "Four-Buildings-a-Day Tour" are opened for application. For details and enrolment, please visit the project's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AGB2013-14.
 
The AGB 2014-15 will issue a call for proposals in late 2014. Details will be announced in the forthcoming APO newsletter and on the Facebook page.
