The Umbrella Movement, grounded in the ideology to push for electoral reform in Hong Kong, has been considered a finite one…. persevering for the right for open and free elections. This movement has had a rippling impact for all, both individually and collectively, as it propelled into heightened states reaching world-wide exposure despite its’ peaceful intentions. Although several months have passed since the main demonstrations have ceased, the memories, images, symbols and songs remain in the air as the dust of the strife begins to settle.
In this three-evening workshop, participants will have the opportunity to reflect upon their experiences/ or involvement connected to The Umbrella Movement and engage in responsive art making through a series of images and drama enactment.
Through this process one can engage in a genuine reflection process, as to how the different facets of this most recent event has touched and shaped/ or impacted their lives and how to respond with greater clarity, gaining deeper insight.
Please wear comfortable clothing as we will be making art and moving.
