Hidden Forest Sparks Up This Summer with An Array of Local Ecology Programmes
Why We Recommend it
The summer arts and culture project offers a line-up of events, programs and experiences for all ages – all centring on the diverse local ecology to be explored this summer.
Hidden Forests celebrates Hong Kong’s trees and biodiversity and promotes the importance of caring for the environment. Inspired as a response to Hong Kong’s devastating loss of trees caused by the tropical cyclone Typhoon Mangkhut in September 2018, Hidden Forests includes an art exhibition, a music series, community workshops and nature tours that explore the significance of trees to our local environment, culture and history. The cross-disciplinary program brings together local artistic talents and expert ecologists to strengthen public awareness about forestry and biodiversity in Hong Kong.
The opening ceremony for Hidden Forests on 6 July 2019 at Asia Society coincides with an afternoon of centre-wide activities open to the general public. Environmental Fun Day is a family event for visitors of all ages to enjoy a series of fun and educational activities, including Ode to Trees chamber music ensemble curated by Project 21.
Please note that most of the events at the opening ceremony are free but requires prior registration. Click here for more details.
