TEDxWanChaiSalon - Art: Who Cares?
ART: WHO CARES?
On May 20th, 2017, we will explore the various shapes and forms in which art exists all around us, why it matters, and why we should all care. This 3-hour session will be a mix of live speakers and pre-recorded TED talks to offer a well-rounded, cross-industry understanding of art in today's world, and will also include performances and poetry from Peel Street Poetry.
This event will be a smaller, more intimate gathering of like-minded individuals. With limited tickets available, get yours before they are sold out!
Your ticket includes a drink and a free entry to the Affordable Art Fair (worth HK $120), being held at HKCEC from May 19-21. Learn more about the fair here.
