‘Arts for All’— all individuals should feel free to express themselves through art.
Art is a universal medium of communication and expression beyond words — it connects individuals and communities across nations and cultural backgrounds. It unites in its infinite diversity.
The Hong Kong Arts Centre is honoured to work with author Michelle Ling Allcock again to publish Daisy Fairy and the Bear: From the Beach to Wondeer, the sequel to her illustration book, Daisy Fairy and the Bear. We are most grateful for the concerted effort of our partner,Tung Wah Group of Hospitals i-dArt, who has made this meaningful project possible. Through this project, we have connected six talented artists across age groups and backgrounds, who are all eager to express their thoughts without any barrier or hindrance. Visitors will see their colourful Wondeer in the exhibition.
Published by Hong Kong Arts Centre, the illustration books, Daisy Fairy and the Bear and Daisy Fairy and the Bear: From the Beach to Wondeer are available for sale at the Hong Kong Arts Centre Art Shop and online shop (hkacartshop.store).
Daisy Fairy and the Bear: From the Beach to Wondeer, the sequel to her illustration book, Daisy Fairy and the Bear published in 2019, is a fairy tale about the co-existence between human beings, animals and nature. The story conveys the meaningful message that we should appreciate and treasure every life, cherish the relationship with the environment, and exist in harmony with nature.

Art is a barrier-free common language. To appreciate beautiful things and to do creation freely are inborn abilities and rights of human beings. The focus of art appreciation should be on the power that the creators give to their creations and also their abilities, instead of their intelligence or physical ability.
Holding such beliefs, i-dArt connects people with and without disabilities as well as explores more possibilities and creative spaces in the community. In addition, we encourage more people with different abilities to participate in art so as to promote social inclusion.
