Muse Fest HK 2017
24-06-2017 (Sat) – 09-07-2017 (Sun)
Museum goers all have their own unique museum experience. It may come from the encounter of an artwork, a relic that could tell a story or an idea-igniting scientific invention, which is just like a pebble that has been casted into their mind and created beautiful ripples. Maybe it is that kind of resonant effects that attract them to keep coming back to the museums.
The Muse Fest HK, stepping into its 3rd year, thus set "Rippling" as the theme with an aim of linking different public museums and visitors together to keep the vibration extending wider and further. This year, we have gathered the museums, other related offices, heritage centres and art spaces under our management as well as other museum partners in Guangdong, Macao and Hong Kong to bring along a series of thought provoking programmes, including exhibitions, film screenings, talks, concerts, guided tours and workshops. We hope that the festival will create ripples of inspiration to our participants and one day they will be turned into unparalleled ideas and energies.
