2015 Summer Camp: Active Voice


Summer Camp: Active Voice is for secondary six students who have recently received their Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education. It aims to encourage students to actively engage with art as a means of self-discovery.
The camp comprises a series of programmes planned and facilitated by both artists and university volunteers who, in sharing their knowledge and experiences, hope to bring out the distinctive voices of the participants. Working within a creative environment, participants will learn how to use art as an agent of inquiry and self-expression.
The camp is primarily led by a group of university volunteers from diverse academic backgrounds to raise a greater awareness of the influence of words, choices, and actions. Invited guest facilitators this year include artists South Ho, Wong Ka Ying, and Elvis Yip, who will present unique, experimental approaches to art that challenge existing perceptions of leadership and identity.
