INAUGURATION OF WANCHAI VISUAL ARCHIVE
灣仔視集開幕展

 

 

Wan Chai experienced drastic cultural changes in recent years - Blue House, Lee Tung Street, Hopewell Centre II, Wan Chai market... yet alternative renewal models rooted on cultural sustainability and community participa- tion leave no traces.
Wan Chai Visual Archive (WVA) emerges as a non-profit and non-governmental body in-situ, a cultural incubator synergizing urban renewal, cultural tourism and community arts. Supported by the School of Design and partner with corporate social responsibility, WVA strives to co-discuss, co-create and research together with stakeholders from ground up.
One shall experience community works from four workshops, displayed within a space no more than two hundred sq ft. There are over hundreds of contributors, at the same time aligning local, overseas, youth and community artists from every corner of the world. A Creative Community Forum by renowned speakers will be conducted in the evening. Comrades please join us on May 24 at No. 5-9 Hing Wan Street, Wan Chai.

這年頭灣仔大變:藍屋、喜帖街、合和二期、舊街市各自變身,然而策略守舊、手法迂廻,根本從 文化與社區動員出發的發展模式更少。
灣仔視集(WVA)以非牟利非政府的新姿勢冒起,嘗試在市區重建、文化旅遊和社區藝術的脈 絡之間培育文化卵巢,更找來良心企業和設計學院共同部署,邊討論邊創作,仲要做研究,不忘 齊齊進化。
灣仔視集饋集文化誠品,開幕展僅僅二百平方,作品來自四個工作坊,有過百人參與,連結本土、 海外、青年、街坊藝術家...同場加開吹水會,衣香鬢影,同志五月廿四日請到灣仔慶雲街5-9號, 一齊飲杯茶食個包搞文化!
