Muse Fest HK 2018


23-06-2018 (Sat) – 08-07-2018 (Sun)

Spinning in the rapid-paced life, do you still have the patience to wait, to expect?

While you might have already become impatient in waiting, there might still be a kind of expectation that would excite you –– to anticipate what a friend is going to say when you find this friend is typing a message to you on a phone. You might then get prepared and look forward to a chat to be opened up.

So we set "Museum is typing …" as the theme of this year's Muse Fest HK. It implies the expectation created for the museums and visitors to dialogue with each other. During the festival, the museum will talk with you in different ways through an array of programmes, new exhibitions, workshops, talks, movies, music and fashion shows, etc. You can expect something wonderful to come up and you are welcomed to feedback! The museums look forward to a real dialogue with you.
