  3. Now more than ever, film is a powerful tool for amplifying voices, inciting empathy, and shedding light on social issues. As visual storytellers, filmmakers have invaluable skills to offer to the community. Grassroots groups that champion progressive causes lead the way in creating and inspiring positive change. At this meet-up, filmmakers and community groups can link up for video projects that highlight important social change work.

  4. Artists from all countries are invited to send a proposal for a site-specific outdoor sculpture installation that will raise public awareness and enlist people to take action and live with a changing global environment and in particular the sinking land, rising waters, strong winds, and increasingly powerful typhoons in the Cheng Long area. This year the art project aims to raise awareness about collective environmental responsibility and how people can work together in harmony with nature to rebuild and readjust to a changing environment. The artworks will emphasize the natural cycle of life: birth, life, death and then rebirth, and engage the community to take action to make the environment better for living with the changes.

  3. Ever thought about attending a drop-in figure drawing session but didn’t know what to expect? How do you look at a naked model without staring? What are drawing horses used for? Is talking allowed? What do I do if I want to take a picture and finish my drawing later? What are the different types of drawing sessions and who are they for? What do I do if I don’t want anyone to look at my drawing?
