Hanging Around@ JTIA: The Creative Process

Some people chase light and shadow in the darkness and grope towards the unseen. They need only a little light to light up their enthusiasm and dreams, and shine bright.

Behind the spotlight are a group of persistent cultivators, silently making great creative work.
With your support they can break through the barriers of reality and complete this feast of creation.

    Wong Kum, a Hong Kong painter who is known for his outstanding figure paintings. His oil paintings, watercolours, and sketches all exhibit solid skills that viewers really appreciate. In the 1970s and 1980s, the golden age of Hong Kong films, Wong’s paintings were seen on theatre posters, publicity posters, and even the design of stamps issued by the government.

  •  “Sound & Images make the movie!” Sharing Session

The birth of a movie, in addition to the efforts of actors, directors, and screenwriters, also depends on the silent efforts of the production team behind them. Production designers must shoulder the visual style of the whole movie, from conceiving scenes to purchasing props, while animation and foreign films rely on the skill of the voice actor to bring the story to life. In March, Hanging Around @ JTIA has invited the assistant production designer Cam Wu and voice actor Cheung Yu Tung (Dongdong), to share their stories of the world of light and shadow.

Date: 17 March (Sunday)
Time: 2:30 pm – 4 pm
Place: Resource Centre, 1/F, Block G, Mid zone, Jao Tsung-I Academy

Workshop and Activities for Parents & Children

Handmade Tree Musical Instrument Workshop

This workshop, from the perspective of art and design, helps you to rethink the nature and appearance of objects, and picks up the things that appear to be ordinary and useless, and explore the possibility of re-creation and intertwine them into a new story. We hope that this workshop becomes a window for us to share our life stories, and a way to gather and solidify inspiration and stories.


Branches and shells from nature, and shirts and soda lids often seen in life, together with lines and yarn can be used to make colourful musical instruments. Slow down the pace of life, look farther away, and pay close attention to human feelings and the things around you. In daily life, you can already find creative ideas that are endless that hopefully bring you closer to nature.


Time: 2:00pm-3:00pm, 17 March 2019
Place: Activity Room 10, G/F, Block J, Mid Zone, Jao Tsung-I Academy

Quota: 15

Cost: HK$150 per person/ family group

Mini Aquatic Cinema

Office workers spend a lot of time in the office staring at their unchanging desk every day while their stress gets bigger and bigger. At times it is necessary to change the decorations on the desk. Your mood immediately improves if you see small fish and shrimps swim and water plants float in the water when you are tired; the office has more green vitality, and instantly heals the irritating pressure of work.


The workshop will briefly introduce the concept of reciprocity of biology and environment in the ecosystem. Participants will create movie scenes with water plants and decorative stones in the building blocks, and join the snails and cherry shrimps to create a small ecosystem.


Time: 3:30pm-5:00pm, 17 March 2019
Place: Activity Room 10, G/F, Block J, Mid Zone, Jao Tsung-I Academy

Literary Sketching @ JTIA

Literary writing is the expression of emotion and the carrier of memory. When literature meets historical buildings, it always ignites a unique spark.

It will be a leisurely experience to write literature in a sea of flowers surrounded by red bricks. JTIA has specially invited local Hong Kong writers, Leung Wai Lok, Tsui Cheuk Yin, and Li Ho Him to organize a series of three literary sketching activities to use literature to write about historical buildings together with you.
