Meet Our Artists

Our 10 artists come from all walks of life across Hong Kong, like you.

We hope you find these perspectives serve as a reminder of how strong Hong Kongers are, and how each of our unique voices can inspire others. We believe everyone is an artist with a unique lens.

To show the diversity of Hong Kong, we designed this mix of backgrounds as a cross-section of society -- across age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status & more.

We also looked for people from some industry sectors heavily hit by the pandemic. All were nominated by different circles.
