The trailblazing British Council Spark festival of creativity is returning from 20 to 23 October, celebrating connections and inclusion in our communities and offering a platform for cultural exchange between Hong Kong and the UK across arts, education, and the English language.
With its debut in 2019 at Tai Kwun, this second edition of Spark has moved online, presenting the best in art, music, dance, education and digital culture from over 40 creative partners from Hong Kong and the UK working together to host more than 30 events. This year’s innovative programme is arranged into four themes, including “Cloud Piazza,” which is a space for knowledge exchange, debate, and interactions; and “Novel Dimensions,” which presents an array of new virtual experiences. Common Good” features animations, workshops, films and talks that encourage inclusion and accessibility; while “Bridging Cities” aims to bridge geographical gaps for cultural understanding and exchange through interactive short films, various showcases and talks.
A place for creativity, collaboration, and inspirational thinking, Spark events are free, but some require pre-registration. To be as inclusive and reach as wide and diverse an audience as possible, each Spark programme has particular accessibility features. Click here for more information about the programme and to book.
