Respond to the Current Era via Interdisciplinary Artworks
Living in such a tumultuous place with countless issues, lots of thoughts entangled in our head, emotions keep piling up and there is nowhere to dispel them, eventually it builds a heavy sense of powerlessness. At this point, art becomes the outlet of expressing all the unutterable emotions. Within arts creation, it hides the real portrait of society.
“Self Institute” provides a platform for youngsters to fulfill their artistic initiatives, merges the current local social issues with arts, extracts art elements from different fields, thus creating interdisciplinary artworks that reflect local social conditions. The programme will invite a group of artists and professionals from different disciplines as mentors to give guidance and envision participants in arts creation and reflections on social issues. The mentors will also share their own experiences, insights and expertise from respective disciplines. Once the participants are selected to be the apprentices, they will have the chance to receive Seed Funding to develop their creative cultural plans and realize their artistic initiatives.
If you have any creative ideas, or you are interested in interacting with artists and professionals, Cultural Masseur “Self Institute” is willing to provide a platform for expressing your ideas about different social issues via art.
Respond, communicate and interact to the current era via art instead of words. Infuse all our ideas and emotions into artworks, and let art become a mirror to reflect our reality.
