    【 North Point Meet & Greet – A day of life in the neighbourhood】| 1pm-2pm, Friday 29 January 2021

    In the midst of preparation for Open Call for Creative Community Space Proposals, do you want to have deeper knowledge about North Point? Do you wish to connect with the neighbourhoood in North Point that you might engage in the design process but not sure how to start?

    Hong Kong Arts Centre will launch an online sharing session 【North Point Meet & Greet – A day of life in the neighbourhood】to allow the potential creative talents to understand more about the social fabrics and needs on public spaces, and provide an opportunity to communicate directly with neighbourhood from diverse background (community centre, elder and youth generations, market vendor at Chun Yeung Street etc.)

    In the sharing session, each guest will share a day of life as a resident or a worker in North Point and their observations. Potential creative talents are most welcomed to get prepared for questions that stuck in your mind and grasp the chance to ask the neighbourhood to get more inspirations for designing the proposals.
