The University of Salford Art Collection invites you to the launch of this year's Peer to Peer: UK/HK online festival on Monday 26th of September.
Peer to Peer: UK/HK is a programme designed to encourage meaningful cultural exchange and to forge enduring partnerships between the UK and Hong Kong’s visual arts sectors.
Peer to Peer: UK/HK 2022 builds on the success of the pilot festival in 2020. Working within a distributed leadership framework, 9 UK visual arts organisations have developed partnerships with 9 Hong Kong organisations, to create unique projects that encourage exchange between more than 43 artists, and over 160 students, in and from each place. This culminates publicly in an online festival from 26th September until 9th October 2022, curated and shaped by and with the partners.
We are delighted to invite you to the launch of the online festival on the 26th. Speakers include: Sarah Fisher, Open Eye Gallery and Lindsay Taylor, University of Salford Art Collection; Nicola Smyth, Arts Council England; Ying Kwok, Independent curator and project Ambassador, and representatives from each partnership.
Then join us across the 8 days of the symposium for talks and events from the participating partners, organisations, and artists.
