Hong Kong, formed by islands, has evolved our unique culture, religions, geology and social practices in harmony with nature. During this 3-year Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival, aside from our base at Yim Tin Tsai, participants can further explore the old and the new of Sai Kung Hoi at Sharp Island, High Island and Kau Sai Chau through different art installations and public programmes. With the theme of《Joy Again, Isle》, we wish that the isles can be the place where people meet, connect, begin and enjoy their journeys to experience the healing power of arts and nature.
The 61-day long Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2022 has been concluded with great success on 15 January. Apart from displaying the 9 artworks, a total of 284 guided tours, 45 programmes and performances have been held to let the visitors participate in the Arts Festival in their own way and experience the healing power of the nature. Thank you again for your overwhelming support to the Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival. Let’s look at the highlights of some of the precious moments in the past two months!
Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival 2023 will be held by the end of this year tentatively. Please stay tuned for the updates in this page! Joy Again, Isle!
