The 6th Hong Kong Touch Art Festival: In Search for Invisible Memory
The 6th Hong Kong Touch Art Festival will be held by Centre for Community Cultural Development (CCCD), from 18th to 26th of May at Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre. The theme of this year's festival will be “In Search for Invisible Memory”. With touchable artworks and different non-visual settings at the venue, visitors are invited to experience the memories and history of Hong Kong through artists’ creation.

We use our sense of touch on a daily basis, yet its possibility as a medium for art appreciation is often neglected, especially in the visually dominated culture. Touch art is an art form that tries to embody those possibilities. It embraces inclusion and invites visually impaired people to enjoy art and even create their own artworks. Visitors are encouraged to put aside their usual art appreciation experience and use other senses to explore the exhibition “In Search for Invisible Memories”.

This exhibition not only allows one to take a glimpse into the lives of the persons with visual impairment, but also shows that art and tolerance is really the way to understand Hong Kong and authenticate our common experiences.
 
Opening: 18th May 2019 (Sat)
Exhibition: 18th – 26th May 2019 (Closed on Tuesday)
Time: 10:00am – 9:00pm
Venue: Exhibition Hall, Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (7A Kennedy Road, Central, HK)
*Free Admission*

Miranda Chin Dance Company 30th Anniversary Performance: Miranda Chin’s Martial Arts Dance
“Miranda Chin’s Martial Arts Dance Series” is a local production that stresses both traditional interpretation and contemporary creation. From 2001 to 2011, Artistic Director of the Company, Dr. Miranda Chin, found inspirations of the series from her visits to Mount Wudang and Mount Qing Cheng, and her experiences visiting scholars at Beijing Sports University and interviews with masters of Tai Chi and Martial Arts.
 
“Miranda Chin’s Martial Arts Dance” transforms Chinese classics, with the performances by Tai Chi Masters accompanied by live music and dances, to demonstrate the secrets of Tai Chi philosophy, displaying the cultural essence of dances such as “the Highest State of Good-Water” from “Tao De Jing” (the Book of The Placid and Contented Nature), “Tai Chi boxing, Tai Chi swordplay”, “Huangdi Neijing (Inner Canon of Huangdi)”, “Yijing, Eight Trigrams”, and“the Onesness of Heaven and Humanity, Tai Chi Pushing Hands and Jing Qi Shen” from the perceptives of Chinese philosophy, literature, medicine and “Shu Shu”(Numerological Arts for Fortune-Telling).

HK Dance “Red Poppies” (4th Run)
Adapted from the eponymous novel, which won China’s most prestigious book prize established by writer Mao Dun, the grand dance drama Red Poppies draws from folk dance traditions of the Tibetan region where the book is set. Featuring Tibetan music and singing as well as colourful tribal costumes, Red Poppies is a testament to the changes of time, the destruction of old world orders and the coming of a new age. It is also a meditation on karma, on good and evil through the Tibetan culture and traditions.

Knowledge of Design Week (KODW) 2019: Designing Digital Futures
With ever-changing digital technology catalysing smart cities of the future, the key to creating a smart yet liveable city lies in the application of human-centred design thinking. Building on the theme “Design for Liveability” last year which captured the attention of the industry and the general public, KODW 2019 will continue to inspire new ideas and discussion, looking into how human-centred design serves as a bridge between “digital technology” and “humanity” as we explore future design and urban developments. The theme also echoes the HKSAR Government’s vision of turning Hong Kong into a world-leading smart city.
 
KODW 2019 is a week-long curated programme and will be held from 17th to 21st June this year. KODW fosters cross-disciplinary learning and exchange through 3 thematic forums, 7 interactive workshops, an InnoDesign Leadership CEO Forum and a Roundtable focusing on public service innovation, providing an invaluable knowledge-sharing platform that connects global field experts, policy makers, industry leaders and forward-thinking minds. It engages different stakeholders in a multi-level dialogue on how design can solve complex challenges of our society. Internationally-renowned industry experts and business leaders from around 10 cities across 4 continents will gather together in Hong Kong to explore the three cornerstones of future urban life: “Liveable Smart City”, “Future Retail & Lifestyle” and “Digital Health”.
