Thu - Wed
Sha Tin Park

This exhibition, organised by the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation, helps local artists and  young people discover and celebrate Hong Kong’s communities. It features  24 large-scale visual art installations that tell different stories about local residents and craftsmen.

Hong Kong’s very own crochet artist and yarn bomber Esther Poon Suk-ban has transformed Sha Tin Park’s 150-metre-long Lek Yuen Bridge with a stunning crochet installation, while students from three secondary schools in Sha Tin, led by project artists Kiwi Liu and Mable Wun, took inspiration from the communities they live in to decorate 66 fibreglass pigeons, reflecting their sense of belonging to Hong Kong.

Apart from other sculptures, there are free workshops – “Weave Together” and “Pigeon Post” on weekends from 1.30pm-4.30pm – where you can learn to make your own little masterpiece to take home.
