Conference on Publicly Engaged Art Practices" on December 6 and 7, inviting members of the arts and cultural community from the Mainland, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong to meet and share their experiences with a view to offering practical recommendations for art implementation and encourage artistic creativity.
