Street Art Festival HKwalls Goes to Wan Chai
Why We Recommend it
The 6th edition of HKwalls sees local and international artist painting street murals in Wan Chai, as well as fun workshops, parties and pop-up shows.
HKwalls was founded in 2014 with the objective of engaging new audiences and strengthening the link between art and public space. Every year, the non-profit organisation holds a street art festival in a different district in Hong Kong during the city’s arts month.
The 2019 edition of HKwalls sees a nine-day celebration of street art and creative collaboration in Wan Chai. A stylistically and culturally diverse group of artists, coming from different countries all over the world, will be painting in the streets.
A pop-up exhibition will be held in The Clubhouse, the festival’s headquarters—which is situated within a 90 year old Grade III historic building located at 6 Stewart Road—complimented by a series of short film screenings, walking tours in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, music shows, and workshops in cross-stitching, poster making and graffiti art.
The event will culminate in a closing party in The Clubhouse on March 31, during which visitors can meet many of the featured artists, get a last look at the many artwork on display, watch a short film or two, and enjoy live DJ sets and free drinks.
