Tai Kwun | Centre for Heritage and Arts | 18-20 January 2019

UK/HK | A shared future through creativity and innovation

SPARK: The Science and Art of Creativity – Hong Kong’s first Festival of Ideas celebrating creativity across the arts, sciences and education – attracted over 14,000 visitors to Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts from 18-20 January 2019. A place for debate, inspiration and visionary thinking, the inaugural festival organised by the British Council was packed with interactive experiences, provocative performances and stimulating talks. 

SPARK brought together over 200 artists, scientists and academics from Hong Kong and the UK from over 50 arts and education organisations presenting 37 events in a vibrant platform for cultural exchange. A Schools’ Outreach programme ran alongside the main events and best of all, it was all FREE!

Festival-goers became superheroes, travelled through time, played music with lasers and controlled a sci-fi thriller with their brains! Browse this website to learn more about SPARK 2019 and watch this space or sign up to our newsletter for updates about SPARK 2021!
