KCR Art Corner displays art pieces of International Festival of Inclusive Arts Exhibition
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) joined hands with the Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (ADAHK) to present selected artworks from the "Ways to See" exhibition of the International Festival of Inclusive Arts (IFIA) at the KCR Art Corner at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station.
The IFIA, co-organised by the Health, Welfare and Food Bureau and the ADAHK, presents a series of programmes from 2 to 10 December 2006 at various venues throughout the territory. One of the highlights is the inclusive arts exhibition - "Ways to See".
Taking this opportunity, the KCR Art Corner will display the artworks of five local artists with disabilities who participated in the "Ways to See" exhibition. They are Lau Wai Ming, Wong Ping Kwok, Liu Tung Mui, Ko Nam and Lee Hon Cheong. The exhibition helps bring art of different styles into the community for sharing with the public.
IFIA aims at promoting harmony and inclusiveness through art - a barrier free communication platform; encouraging understanding between people with and without disabilities and promoting the spirit of artistic creativity through their collaboration in cultural and art activities; and enriching the art and cultural lives of Hong Kong people by staging excellent works of local and overseas artists with and without disabilities.
To promote art, KCRC launched the KCR Art Corner at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station in March 2005. Since then, KCRC has sponsored a number of non-profit organisations and outstanding local artists for the display of 2-dimensional art pieces at the Art Corner.
This round of exhibition at the KCR Art Corner will last until late January 2007. Do take a minute out of your busy schedule to appreciate the works of the talented artists with disabilities.
KCR Art Corner is now displaying artworks of the IFIA exhibition.
