Time: 7 - 9 pm
Venue: HOPE & GLORY, ArtisTree, 1/F Cornwall House, TaiKoo Place, Island East, Hong Kong (MTR: Quarry bay, Exit A)
How can art help us to re-imagine and re-experience place and community? What role does collaboration play in producing art? And what cultural strategies might be developed to amplify the scope of artistic interventions? The HOPE & GLORY forums bring together participants from a wide range of backgrounds to explore the interrelationship between space, place, community and art in Hong Kong through discussions, interactive performances, and music.

Art as Place
The HOPE & GLORY project seeks to move beyond the idea of the art object to explore the idea of art as a place of transformative experience, a 'third space' of deeper experience in our daily lives. The 'Art as Place' forum invites a diverse group of Hong Kong arts activists from both the visual and performing arts fields who will share their experiences in creating positive interventions through art in the Hong Kong social landscape. The forum will open with an improvisational, interactive performance within the installation by the Symbiotic Dance Troupe.

HOPE & GLORY: The Making
The installation project HOPE & GLORY was made possible by the participation of many individuals: in Hong Kong, China – and across the globe. In HOPE & GLORY: The Making, artist Simon Birch discusses the collaborative nature of contemporary art-making with friends - fellow artists, designers and others - who helped to realize the project. The forum is at once a celebration of art-making as a communal, interactive and participatory process, and a critical reflection on the challenges of making large-scale art.
The HOPE & GLORY forums and related educational programmes were generously supported by a grant from Louis Vuitton.
