We are delighted to be part of Peer to Peer: UK/HK, a digital programme and platform encouraging meaningful cultural exchange and forging enduring partnerships between the UK and Hong Kong’s visual arts sectors. It will include an online programme of new and existing digital artwork from UK and Hong Kong artists, digital artist residencies and host a digital sharing platform for international collaboration and discussion. It will culminate in an online festival of international exchange and collaboration 11-14 November, curated by independent curator Ying Kwok and managed by University of Salford Art Collection, Open Eye Gallery and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art.
The project has been generously supported by funding from Arts Council England and the GREAT campaign.
Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 is a programme designed to encourage meaningful cultural exchange and to forge enduring partnerships between the UK and Hong Kong’s visual arts sectors. It builds on the success of the pilot festival in 2020. Working within a distributed leadership framework, nine UK visual arts organisations have developed partnerships with nine Hong Kong organisations, to create unique projects that encourage exchange between more than 43 artists, and 160 students, in and from each place. This culminates publicly in an online festival curated and shaped by and with the partners.
We are working with 183 Gallery in Hong Kong, and staff and students from Falmouth University and The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
