Overview

What is creativity? Do you think you are creative?

Many people nowadays recongise the importance of being creative, however, some of them may also feel frustrated for not being able to manifest their creativity, which sometimes is because they have limited creativity in the context of arts. In fact, creativity is about unleashing one’s mind and looking for meanings and solutions through imagination. Join us in this series of events exploring what “creativity” is about and get inspired in Tai Kwun.
