“We Persist, Therefore We Have Hope”

Wednesday, 11 May 2022, 6 – 7pm

“We Persist, Therefore We Have Hope”

“We Persist, Therefore We Have Hope”: Trauma and Resilience of Hongkongers through Their Art since 2019 is an art exhibition and discussion panel event organised by the School of Medicine, the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies, and the School of Creative Arts, in association with the Trinity Long Room Hub and working in partnership with members of the Hong Kong community.

The exhibition features the works from seven Hongkonger artists: Juarts, KokDamon, Lumli Lumlong, Mei Yuk Wong, Monkmonki, Ricker Choi, vawongsir.

Bringing together transdisciplinary perspectives across narrative medicine, resistance studies, and creative arts practice, the exhibition and discussion panels will be the inaugural event of the “protest art” theme to be pursued by the Trinity Centre for Resistance Studies (CRS) in the coming years. Through Hongkongers’ artworks shared as part of the pro-democracy protests and dialogues with Hong Kong artists, we explore questions of trauma, resilience, solidarity, and resistance, and how these inform Hongkongers’ emerging identity as a distinct ethnic community. This exhibition is offered in the belief that it is the core role of the university to share knowledge with the community, including knowledge in artistic form, and to curate meaningful conversations around events in the contemporary world.
