M+ Rover: Travelling Creative Studio
M+ Rover emphasises participatory art practice and collaboration between students and artists. It offers you an experience of the creative processes of contemporary visual culture that encourages interpersonal interactions, dialogue, and exploration of new possibilities. This year, M+ is collaborating with the artist Ng Ka Chun. His commissioned work 'Thing beyond Things' shows how ordinary, everyday objects can be transformed through imagination to reveal the relationship between objects and daily life. Ng believes imagination is the best ‘tool’, and his works are simple yet powerful manifestations of the ways in which he responds to and transforms things.

Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre: All Art Great and Small
Using a vintage weighing machine as a vice, JCCAC hopes to recall nostalgic memories of old machinery and promote artist growth from the Centre. The weight tickets are specially designed and illustrated by 10 JCCAC resident artists – with a few of them from previous AAF editions of Young Talent Hong Kong including Angel Hui Hoi Kiu and Dirty Paper.

Speed yoga live drawing
With his amazing drawing skill, Russian artist Sergei Rozhnov captures the inner balance of the yoga trainer. Through the process of portraying gestures, art's expressiveness provdes peaceful respite from the noise and busyness of the city. Join the workshop and share the fun of drawing while resting at our Creative Hub.
