The global pandemic has upended our everyday lives like never before. The optometric term ”20/20 vision” denotes normal visual acuity measured at a distance of 20 feet. In this age of uncertainties, having such a clear vision becomes all the more important in helping us grasp opportunities and uphold hopes amidst the unprecedented crisis. Organised by Hong Kong Design Centre, BODW CityProg comes to its third edition this year with the theme ”20/20 Vision of Post-pandemic World,” presenting more than 200 creative happenings to inspire you to search for your unique 20/20 vision and a spirit of designing for society.
As in previous years, CityProg spans across November and December. Its nine-day peak period from 28 November to 6 December will coincide with Business of Design Week (BODW) and other concurrent events to ignite an outburst of creativity throughout the city. Carrying on the three platforms distinctly curated for different types of partners, this year CityProg continues to connect local creativity and design initiatives with incredible talents to bring to the public 17 one- to three-day anchor site festivals, five design eduVation programmes targeting different age groups and more than 50 satellite events. They add up to more than 200 activities of various scales under four post-pandemic 20/20 visions: Made in Hong Kong, wellness and sustainability, placemaking, and business as a force for social good. All of these visions aim to foster the design thinking and creative problem-solving spirit to boost the city’s resilience and agility as the post-pandemic era ushers in.
