In celebration of the Moving Forwards, Sideways Project, we welcome everyone to view the works created by Hong Kong BN(O) communities. Using a mixture of mediums such as acrylic, printmaking, ceramics, and performance, Hong Kong families explored the themes of migration, belonging, family, and home.
We will also have an informal gathering with refreshments to celebrate together on 24 June from 1pm. Reserve your free place via the ticket button.
‘Communities in the Making’ is an ongoing series of events that unites community-led and process-driven approaches to fostering co-existence amongst diverse underrepresented cultures and communities in Manchester. Through artist-led workshops, collaborative screenings, cross-disciplinary exchanges, and roundtable discussions, we actively ponder ways of nurturing agency to lay the groundwork for community building.
Throughout the course of the programme, members of the public are invited to gather, collaborate, and contemplate with us. We believe in the inherent creativity of every individual and strive to establish meaningful connections that are reflective of our current moment, and meet the needs and aspirations of the community. ‘Communities in the Making’ activates listening, interdependency, and the cultivation of new experiences to celebrate diasporic knowledge, and ground our work in encounters and experimentations.
