Organised by the Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO), the “Art Unbound, Inclusion Absolute - Heritage for All Drawing Competition” invites the participation of people with disabilities to encourage them to be engaged in social activities. Participants can use their creativity, not only to express themselves through art, but also to appreciate historic buildings from new perspectives. The AMO hopes the submissions would resonate with the general public, encourage social inclusion by bringing the general population closer to people with disabilities, and promote appreciation for antiquities and monuments in Hong Kong. Participants are invited to select one of four designated historic buildings as their subjects, and depict attributes of their selections through art.
Pairing the universal language of art with the appreciation of historic buildings, the competition hopes to inspire mutual understanding among people with different abilities.
