From Trash to Treasure
9 May - 14 July, 2011
Time: 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
Venue: Level 5, Terminal 2 (Opposite to 7-Eleven Convenience Store), Hong Kong International Airport, Lantau, Hong Kong

To most Hong Kong people, the concept of recycling is confined to trash categorization. Green industry, however, does not stop here. When recycling can barely handle the excessive waste we produce every day, perhaps it is timely to introduce the ideaof “Upcycling”.

From Trash to Treasure is a workshop generated exhibition that showcases the experiments by young designers to transform “trash” into potentially marketable products. Spanning across material collecting, industry and social enterprise, these are proposals towards a sustainable system, and will cast impact on our strategies of waste handling and energy saving.

Da Vinci’s Mathematics Lessons
- Creative Curriculum Development for Mathematics through Art-in Education
Aug-Dec 2006
Venue: HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

The project served to open up students’ vision in receiving and perceiving mathematics and art, other than just relating them to the school syllabus and examination.

The workshops have greatly broadened students’ horizon in learning and acquiring knowledge, and appreciating both mathematics and art.

The New Media Theatre Lab Performance Finale
15 - 16 Oct, 2010 (Fri - Sat)
Venue: Multi-media Theatre, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

“The New Media Theatre Lab” aims at prodding young participants to experiment the possibilities in interactive media and performing arts, and to explore their own way of expressing ideas through the language and form of selected media. The programme is divided into two phases. The first phase took place in August 2010, in which the young participants learnt about the qualities, features, basic techniques and ways of creation through three different media and art forms: interactive media, sound art, and dance art by attending workshops. Afterwards, participants will put theories into practice by producing a performance based on the history and culture of Hong Kong in the 60s.

The three artists who hosted the workshops – Ma Choi Wo, Victor (Dance Artist, Artistic Director of Y-Space), Cheung Hon Him, Chris (New Media Artist), and Choi Sai Ho (Multi-media Artist and Musician) will also co-create an experimental piece and stage it at the HKSC Multi-media Theatre in October 2010.

KJ & NG - Music is Music
2 -3 Aug 2010
Time: 8 pm
Venue: Multi-media Theatre, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

Piano: Wong Kajeng (KJ) - The Protagonist of the documentary ‘KJ’

Flute: Wilson Ng (NG) - Just finished 4 years of flute learning in Paris. Will join Conservatoire de Lausanne Haute Ecole de Musique as a BA student.

Two music prodigies - the 19 years old KJ, a piano player, and the 20 years old NG, a flute player - will share their flamboyant performance and unique insights about music with us. They will let us know what their favourite composers and music are, such as Bach, Beethoven, Spanish classical music and French flute music.

They started to study music in this city and they won a lot of prizes despite their young age. However, they still have to leave this city temporarily to study overseas so as to develop their strength further. Now KJ is studying piano performance in the States and NG flute playing in France. They will tell us what music means to them and how music education should be so that young people can enjoy music learning and playing with genuine passion and vision. Their original and lightning exchange will for sure lead us to re-visit the primal vivacity of classical music. The journey will be rare and full of bewilderment. It will be unorthodox yet ‘sensational’ and ‘controversial’ as KJ always likes to engage himself in.

An additional concert - “Only Music” will be held on 3 August (Tue) at 6 to 7pm at the multi-media theatre of HKSC. All ticket holders of “KJ & NG - Music is Music” can attend this concert free of charge. Interested audience please reserve seats via phone (2339-7370) or email (artscentre@creativehk.edu.hk). Seats are limited and will therefore be reserved on a first-come-first-served basis.

They said, “At the outside of the door, there will be a crowded future.
In such a crowded world, if we pushed forward, who would be pushed forward?”

They also said, “Memories at the inside of the door are also crowded.
At times, we jammed inside the computer room to print our works.
At times, we rubbed shoulders with all kinds of drawing and painting materials.
At most of the time, we pushed ourselves against one another with art.”

Said the older generation, “The world is yours as well as ours.
But, at the end it is yours.
You are all invited to ring the doorbell to tell your stories.
Let’s push, jam and ram.”

The Making of Culture - Rocco Yim's Education and Cultural Architecture
17 May - 3 June 2009
Time: 10 am - 7 pm daily (closed on public holidays)
Venue: Gallery, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

The style and form of architecture inevitably represent the culture that gives rise to it. In the milieu of modern design, a building itself is the apparatus for all kinds of cultural goings-on. The various spaces allow artists to conceptualize, create as well as showcase their work, and this is how culture is made.

This exhibition sets out to showcase Rocco’s design philosophy and achievements in the realm of cultural and educational architecture, and allow students and the general public to recognize the processes involved in the making of architecture through Rocco’s works.

Video Essay
- A creative project presenting collaborative works of 10 renowned writers and 10 video artists.
July – September 2003
The outcome of this cross-disciplinary project is not simply literary or video creations. This project witnessed Hong Kong’s capacity and openness to accommodate cultural pluralism. The video essays that describe Hong Kong’s culture in different ways and perspectives (or personal reflections on the cultural environment through personal stories and perspectives) are far richer than twenty perspectives in view of the interwoven artistic interpretations. The possibilities are like metaphors of the blueprint for local cultural development. More interesting are the many possible approaches to appreciation and reading of the collaboration, mutual interpretations, exchange and discourse between the two creative medium, which invite even more “interpretations” from the readers/ viewers.

The West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) is one of the biggest cultural projects in the world.

The West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, established in Oct 2008, has rolled out its Stage 1 Public Engagement exercise to receive public opinion on the development of the WKCD. However, the preset consultation questions are mainly discussed among focus groups and have failed to address key questions on the planning, cultural software development, and the governance of the WKCD.

The Hong Kong Institute for Contemporary Culture, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, People's Panel on West Kowloon, School of Architecture of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Zuni Icosahedron would like to create a public platform for all to speak out on West Kowloon. We will jointly organise a series of public forums on WKCD.
