What brings people together? How are communities formed?
Designed and curated by ESKYIU, this exhibition and series of events are set to engage the wider community through architecture, art and technology, aligning with Swire Properties’ Sustainable Development 2030 Strategy. Celebrating ESKYIU's work and projects over the last decade and its future visions, the studio is creating a complex set of transformable objects that interact with participants. This project is also a series of collaborations between the performers through artefact, which will inform new ways to challenge performance. Highlight programmes include Sports Challenge; C-Suite Dialogues; Chinese Music Rediscovery. This exhibition and series of events are co-sponsored and supported by Swire Properties’ ArtisTree, cultural and community partner Nike, and ESKYIU's other cultural partners.
