[if !supportLists]1. Imagination of book

Questioning the concept of reading, we would discuss the definition of a book. Since books are not only words and images, we would adopt the unconventional way of reading, like from left to right, and explore other possibilities of “book-reading”. Participants are encouraged to take a closer look at the book itself and “construct & reconstruct” the structure of books during the 4-day workshops. Through different combinations of body and materials, we are inspired to reinterpret the definition and meaning of a book.

2. [endif]Connecting Kowloon City District

Through a series of creative exercises, participants are encouraged to use objects from our daily lives in different and accessible ways and create artworks by building and enhancing the bonding with the community of Kowloon City district.
