“Power of Narrative” is a community-based art creation programme. The exhibits are picture books designed by young artists from the Academy of Visual Arts of Hong Kong Baptist University. They visited six marginalized groups, namely persons suffered from bereavements, the visually and hearing impaired, the poor cramped in cubicles, the female immigrants from the Mainland and children with special education needs. Based on what they heard, the artists transformed the stories into picture books.
We hope that the exhibition can show the power of narrative by representing communal life in an indigenous way, and hence inspiring people and changing their minds. We may at least recall Hong Kong people to understand the difficulties faced by the marginalized groups, and to realize how they thrive despite the adversities.
