Traditional Chinese Art and Culture at the Mallory

UNESCO Hong Kong Association is organising an Exhibition and Cultural Event at 7 Mallory Street (Green House), Wan Chai on the weekends 12/13 and 19/20 January 2019. We aim to promote traditional Chinese culture and offer a platform for Chinese calligraphy sharing and appreciation while enhancing the quality of life of the community through art and culture. The theme resonates with the historical significance of the renewed building at Mallory Street.

Traditional Chinese Arts and Crafts (Calligraphy Exhibition and workshops) during the weekend 12-13 January aim to arouse interest in the Mallory Urban Renewal Project and traditional Chinese arts and crafts with particular reference to the Lunar New Year celebration. The local community as well as visitors are provided with an opportunity for the appreciation of Traditional Chinese Arts and Crafts.

In the following weekend 19-20 January, we will co-organize with G.O. MARKET, during which a series of traditional Chinese art and cultural activities crossover with local innovative and eco-friendly arts and designs. We aim to promote a green society and an eco-friendly, low-carbon lifestyle.
