'Chur!' Experience

Organized by Youth Square
Date & Time
  • 5 - 28 Sep 2021
  • Y Studio & Y Platform
  • Free

‘Chur’ is the buzzword popular among the local young generation for describing hasty, rush and time-pressed, it is a reflection of Hong Kong people’s demand for high efficiency in everything they do. Everyone, be him/her a salary earner or student, has a tendency of ‘chur’ every moment, the rapid tempo and pressure thus arise have gradually become a normal part of our daily life. In view of this, Youth Square will hold a ‘Chur!’ Experience in September to arouse public awareness of mental well-being and positive thinking.


The activity has invited a number of young artists to participate in the exhibition planning and artwork curation. Inspired by everyday life of the modern urbans, the artworks are created based on young artists’ reflections of what they observed from trivial casual conversations, psychological changes of urban people, conversations deep in one’s heart and the pressure from daily life in an attempt to arouse attention of all to both important and unimportant stories which take place in our city.

 

The activity includes two parts. Part one will be held at Y Studio from 5 to 13 September; and part two will be held at Y Platform from 16 to 28 September. The event include art exhibition, workshops and VR experience, hoping to help participants readjust their tempo of life through appreciation of art and learning skills to relax the mind.
