To Live with “Flexible Optimism”

“Carry On” is the second part of the “Letting Go. Carry On: A Capacity Building Initiative”, jointly presented by 1a space and the Academy of Visual Arts of the Hong Kong Baptist University. The project is curated by Janet Fong and Eugenia Law.

5 local visual artists with art education experiences, Cally Yu, Debe Sham, Ivy Ma, Reds Cheung and Wing Ki Lee, will be commissioned to create a series of communal participatory-based workshop, exercise and interactive digital experiences. By asserting that art as a means to offer alternative solutions for contemporary challenges and cultivate positive energy, the project hopes to foster the spirit of resilience and encourage the public to live with “flexible optimism”.
