Hong Kong, 26 January 2021 — Organized by the Hong Kong Arts Centre (HKAC) and funded by Urban Renewal Fund, ‘Via North Point’, a public art and community initiative that carries the mission of urban revitalization is transforming ideas into an art installation in urban community spaces. The Call for Creative Community Space Proposals welcomes talents from all walks of life, along with artists, creatives and architects, to submit the proposal to breathe new life into the public spaces.
