「疾風勁草」為一立足社區的藝術創作及教育計劃,期望以藝術形式呈現弱勢社群的生活及精神面貌。我們希望讓社區組織、藝術家、年青人相互溝通,並利用藝術作為媒介,共同向社會大眾展示弱勢群體的故事。

「疾風勁草」早前聯同浸會大學視覺藝術院的學生,走訪了6個弱勢群體,包括喪親人士、視障人士、新來港單親婦女、劏房住客、特殊學習需要兒童、聽障人士,並把所見所聞創作成11本精緻繪本,這些繪本擁有截然不同畫風,但同樣帶著真摯情感。「疾風勁草」將於四月至六月在香港進行巡迴展覽,在香港科學園、賽馬會創意藝術中心、天后、葵涌、大埔等地展出。

Power of Narrative(PN) is a community-based art creation and education program, aiming at revealing the authentic lives of the underprivileged by art. It encourages cross-sector cultural understanding between service-providing NGOs, Universities, Artists and Community Members.

PN organizes artists from HKBU Visual Art Academy to visit six underprivileged groups – the hearing impaired, visually impaired, new immigrants, residents in difficult living environment, widowed elderly, students with special education needs. Artists listen to people’s stories, redefine and emerge the bitter-sweet bits of life by means of art.

We did an exhibition at HKBU Kai Tak Campus on October last year, and we plan to do travelling exhibitions from April to June at multiple sites, such as Science Park, JCCAC, Tin Hau, Kwai Chung and Tai Po.

The detail of opening of PN Exhibition at Tai Po is as follows:

Exhibition Date: May 3, 2014 (Saturday)
Time: 10am-6pm
Venue: Open Area, Tai Tak House, Tai Yuen Estate, Tai Po, NT
Opening Ceremony : 4pm-5pm
Content: Artists and various underprivileged groups would share their stories on-site
