Art is ____ (14:00 – 15:30)

Art does not necessarily have to be hung on the wall; for aesthetics mean or emotional expression. Art can be provocative, intrusive, or it can also be a form of protest. It can also involve community and be a game changer. Our panelists will share with you their experience of practicing art away from the gallery and how they generate impact in the society.

Protest Art is ____ (15:45 – 17:15)

Protest art affirms values, raises morale, heals wounds, challenges the system and makes waves. In the case of Hong Kong, we see evolution – Protest art generates function, goes beyond experience and produces change in a movement. We will investigate the, so to speak, “protest art movement” of Hong Kong with our panelists.

Freedom of Speech and____ (17:30 – 19:00)

Stronger suppression usually triggers more creative responses. This formula has been witnessed in many different times and places. Hong Kong has been a city where everyone can enjoy freedom of expression, how would it be when their rights were taken in one day? Yet when we think in the context of Japan, a country that seems to respect freedom of speech, but where people tend to avoid causing agitation for others.Our panelists would share their experiences on art creation and the relation with freedom of speech.
