Since December 2018, the Art Promotion Office has launched "Take PARK in Art", an extended programme of "City Dress Up: Seats．Together", to engage with the public in a series of cross-disciplinary art-making activities in different public spaces of Hong Kong.
For "Take PARK in Art I" (December 2018 to May 2019), participants have co-created public art with elements of painting, weaving, sound art, story writing, drama performance and creative upcycling in collaboration with Hong Kong Public Space Initiative (HKPSI) and other local artists and organisations. The completed works have been exhibited in the respective open spaces. Through this platform for learning and brainstorming new ideas, we believe that the participants can become more imaginative and observant of their surroundings.
Starting from August this year, "Take PARK in Art II" will present a series of new cross-disciplinary art activities in collaboration with a local creative group KACAMA SOCIAL and different community groups. A variety of social experiments like BioBlitz activities, body movement games and creative upcycling workshops will be initiated, with an aim to encouraging the public to open up their senses, immerse themselves in a dialogue between the city and nature, and explore new approaches to sustainable living.
