Show solidarity for the refugees in Hong Kong and abroad through the reclaiming of our public space and connecting the community through arts.
Arts has been the centre of the Refugee Art Movement’s workshops with refugees and asylum seekers. It has been a vehicle for frienship across barriers and now the Refugee Art Movement wants the same to happen beyond their workshops; in our city!

About The Refugee Art Movement: The Refugee Art Movement is a student led initiative that provides arts orientated workshops for refugees, asylum seekers and the wider community in Hong Kong. Started in Hong Kong by a group of students and staff at the University of Hong Kong in August 2015, they wanted to connect people from different socio-economic backgrounds and cultures to build long lasting friendships in Hong Kong.
The Refugee Art Movement uses art, drama, film, photography, music and more to encourage cultural exchange in this diverse city, mutual education and friendship.
In addition, the project aims to educate people about the realities faced by refugees and asylum seekers within Hong Kong and around the world.
The Refugee Art Movement knows from experience that there are so many people with a passion for arts, education and humanitarian issues and so they work to bring them together to use their skills for the benefit of our society. For more information about their work, please visit their Facebook page.
