Co-organization: Hong Kong Arts Centre, New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association
Supporting Organization: Hong Kong Housing Society
Strategic Partner and Sponsor: Lee Hysan Foundation
Funded by Lee Hysan Foundation, the two-year initiative, “A Mind-friendly Estate Model at Cho Yiu Chuen”, began in November 2022 with the objectives of strengthening the community bonds and the "330 well-being" of the residents in Cho Yiu Chuen.
The project aims at connecting the community, promoting mental wellness with our ambassadors, and engaging the residents through the power of art!
Surrounded by the pleasant hilly landscape, Cho Yiu Chuen is an ideal living environment in this hustle and bustle city. However, the community faces certain problems such as remote location, inconvenient transportation, and aging population. As one of the co-organizers, HKAC presents a series of public art programmes to connect the community through art and well-being with our local artists.
- Public Engagement Activity - Draw Our Community!
Participating Artist: Moving Drawing
- Mural Art & Related Art Workshops
Each mural artist conducts a series of workshops relating to their mural art creation at the project beginning.
