Awards Ceremony, Art Auction and Cocktail Reception
Saturday, December 8, 2018
The Hive Spring 
Remex Centre, 3/F, 42 Wong Chuk Hang Road

Five Years of Inspiring the Civic Imagination

Don’t miss one of the most anticipated Arts Prize events of the year -a participatory space where art meets society and big ideas around human rights balance beautifully with action and real change brought by Justice Centre Hong Kong.

Originally launched by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, the prize plays a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. Importantly it provides a platform for artists to create work without boundaries and to magnify the impact and exposure of their stories.

Come join us to celebrate these powerful stories and help us raise much needed funds to ensure Justice Centre’s essential work within the community can continue into 2019.

The event will be catered by Pololi, serving their famous Poke bowls and the bar will be lovingly stocked by Golden Gate Wines, Peroni Beer and Absolut Vodka.
