Since the launch of the "Ignite! Hong Kong Art Portfolio Collection" scheme in May 2013, more than 300 creative talents have joined this online platform to give a preliminary outline of the local creative community. Through this channel, the guest curators and curators of Oi! get to know and understand the creative talents from different background as well as the up and coming artists.
An "Ignite! Lightning Talks by Hong Kong Artists" was held in January 2014 featuring part of the creative talents who shared their works and personal art creation experiences with the audience. A video of the event was also posted on YouTube to enable the public to know more about the art and creativity in Hong Kong.
The scheme is now launching its second open call! All creative talents who work and live in Hong Kong, and the creative talents who have already joined in the first open call, are cordially invited to upload or update respectively their profile and portfolio of works at www.igniteart.hk. Sharing your innovative ideas is one big step forward to make them realised and become part of the "Sparkle!" exhibition series 2014-15. This will also help direct us to a new horizon in art!
