"Cross All Borders 2020: Dare to Share!" Round Table Discussion Concluded Successfully!
"Dare to Share!" which featured a topic of "Inducing Changes and Nurturing of an Artist: Voices and Experience of Artists with Disabilities and their Partners," is the first-ever round table discussion hosted by ADAHK. In the round table discussion series presented as a live webinar on 22 and 29 August, guest artists and their support persons, disability/ inclusive arts organizations, and art institutes shared their ideas with the audience and brought burning questions on art education development. The roundtable was a great example of how art can be used as a force for change in our communities, in this case, serving as a platform for dialogue on issues other than art. The panel of speakers encouraged the audience to examine the social conditions and development of an individual from a broader perspective. Because of this diversity, we can communicate with each other across sectors and borders. We hope that our artists can shine brighter than they can ever imagine!
Online "Life Enrichment Program for Elderly with Disabilities" conquers distance
Many activities held in elderly centers have come to a halt during the pandemic. In August, our Arts Accessibility is delighted to organize an online percussion workshop with the support of Mrs. Mann Tai Po Rhenish Neighbourhood Elderly Centre. Facilitated by music therapist, Ms. Cat Chau, elders and carers used household items, such as bowls and chopsticks, for the percussion workshop. One of the elders, Mr. Chuk, used harmonica to interact with the workshop facilitator to ensemble 'Azalea,' 'Song of Flowers', and 'Feng Yang Hua Gu'; while another elder, Meimui, performed a duet in guitar with her son. Online communion breaks the barriers in social distancing during the pandemic, brings the elderly closer to their family members; the impact of music is far-reaching.
