About the Event
Due to overwhelming response from our Fung Scholars who participated in the past 9 years’ Make a Difference activities organized by Make a Difference Institute, the Victor and William Fung Foundation continued to support our Fung Scholars to MaD Festival held on 12 &13 Jan 2019. The Assembly showcased the outcomes of the festival in Tai Kwun and brought together thousands of participants from Asia and beyond, which included a wide variety of creative programmes, including keynote conversation, mini concert, open studio, exchange, ripple forum, cinema, free market, excursions, etc.
Six Winning Teams of Creative Industries Practitioners undertook immersive studies in cities/regions outside Hong Kong, explored synergies with like-minded partners and kickstarted their own innovative projects in Hong Kong with social, cultural and/or ecological impact. They shared their insights, learning and experience of the exchange and incubation projects at the pilot programmes and the Assembly of the MaD Festival.
