About Jockey Club Pop-up Art Park

The ‘park’ is just around the corner.A park or playground is not only a public space that provides playing facilities, but is also a kaleidoscope of childhood memories and is an oasis for our minds and souls. It is safe, comfortable, yet full of unknown and surprises.

Jockey Club Pop-up Art Park, curated by Hong Kong Arts Centre with the support of The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust as Major Funder, Lee Hysan Foundation as Strategic Partner and the guidance of the Advisory Committee on Mental Health^, introduces to the public a virtual art park (exhibition) which brings together works of art by both Hong Kong and overseas artists with elements of light and technology. The exhibition is accompanied with a series of online education and outreach programmes hosted by professionals across different disciplines. Together they invite the public to probe into the subject of mental wellness through the means of art and play.

The online roundtable discussion and a series of online interactive plays concluded successfully in November 2020. The virtual art park (jcpopupartpark.hk) will be launched in January 2021, followed by a number of online talks and play sessions which will run till April 2021. All the public programmes are free of charge, please feel free to join.

In times of uncertainties, let us search for our own park in the heart. Keeping a ‘the park is just around the corner’ spirit is crucial to enhance our physical and mental resistance to the pandemic.  Regardless of what happens, we all have a park in our heart.
