Hong Kong Creative Force
As Asia’s leading hub of creativity, Hong Kong has been fostering growth of the local creative industries and is on the cutting edge of various sectors including design, advertising, marketing, digital entertainment, films, music, television, publishing & printing and architecture. The significant contribution of cultural and creative industries to Hong Kong’s economy will continue to be one of the key driving forces of Hong Kong’s economic growth in the future.
Sponsored by the “Create Hong Kong (CreateHK)” of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), the “Hong Kong Creative Force” pavilion is a campaign to raise public awareness of local young creative talents. Local designers can promote their innovative works to local and overseas visitors, as well as connect with the business sector and overseas markets through this platform.
In 2019, the “Hong Kong Creative Force” pavilion showcased a series of design projects which feature the effort made by ingenious local artists, including a collaborative design project with local young designers - “RetroInnovations”, and many other creative works from diversified disciplines – including architecture, sculpture, photography, painting and upcycling, and art pieces reflecting Hong Kong traditional craftsmanship.
In line with the overarching theme of “Co-create Sustainable Cities”, all these collaborative works aim to promote environmental sustainability, along with the significance to sustain cultures and craftmanship.
