Our Stories-co-creating upcoming workshops #8

This project encourages participants to express and present their stories through poetic reflection and computer arts; creating a cultural awareness in the wider society. It will have three parts. Each part is composed of several workshops with specific themes. At workshops, short videos are used, personal items, cultural images, photos with haiku, shape poems, other writing exercises and computer arts are provided and created. I will invite guest artists to join us for these artistic processes and share their experiences and expertise. Thank our partners: CPAC, HSK and CCNEWS. Thank OAC for the grant.
