On Sunday 13 January, wrap up warm and join us to welcome the new year with live music, dance, fun workshops and more at Freespace Happening in the West Kowloon Art Park.
On stage we have an exciting feast of local and international music. Flying in from Canada are the Cris Derksen Trio, a music ensemble that knit together indigenous, classical and contemporary sounds with urban elements. From Hong Kong we have DAVID BORING, Dusty Bottle, Winter Bagels and The Seekers, plus avant-garde jazz quintet Mo-Men-T, who team up with the Experimental Vocal Ensemble for an emotive set of newly arranged songs. Not to be missed is the solar and human kinetic energy-powered HK.SolarSoundSystem, back with a completely new DJ line-up.
To chase away the winter chill, the afternoon’s WE Dance workshops and performance, led by the quirky, colourful Condors Dance Company, offer an offbeat take on the traditional Japanese folk dance bon-odori that is sure to keep you up and dancing and help break the ice with strangers! The wacky bunch also have a lively performance up their sleeves, so make sure you don't miss out!
The new year is a good time to make a fresh start, so what better place to do that than at A nice place to, where the theme for this month is Open Mind and Open Space. If you’d like to learn about healthy eating and how to reduce food waste, head over to the “Open Picnic: Eat Well”, where our partners 走杯 GO CUP and Eat Well, Live Well present sharing and games to help you and your little ones learn fun facts about food!
If you want to get creative, you can weave together your wishes and hopes for the new year at our Dreamcatcher Workshop, or make your own musical instrument at the Thumbiano Workshop.
This month, the House of Hong Kong Literature presents the new programme “Personality Readings”, with a short quiz and literature readings that will help you uncover your hidden character. You can also cosy up on the lawn with an adopted or borrowed book at the Reading on the Grass book-crossing or pick up a poetry-inspired charm at the Literature Gachapon capsule vending machine.
Animal lovers can join the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society 香港觀鳥會’s introduction to the city’s best birding hotspots and learn about local endangered species, or visit the staff from LAP (Lifelong Animal Protection Charity) and learn how to communicate with our four-legged friends!
