Dunhuang – Resonance of Silk Road, Past and Present – HKGDE 1st anniversary Concert
Dunhuang – Resonance of Silk Road Past and Present is the 1st anniversary concert of the Hong Kong Gaudeamus Dunhuang Ensemble. The concert is themed around Dunhuang culture. All pieces are original works composed by our two resident composers, inspired by murals and Buddha statues from the Mogao Grottoes. Some materials for the compositions were even taken from the pipa manuscripts discovered in the Dunhuang Library Cave, and will be performed by replicas of ancient instruments.
 
This concert aims to inherit the culture of Dunhuang through music, inviting the audience to a musical dialogue with the past and present that showcases the unique parallel between Hong Kong and Dunhuang, and leaves a footnote for the contemporary Silk Road culture.

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”.
