Design Trust is excited to announce that from the 7th-9th of July we are partnering with Chief Curator and Executive Director Eva Franch and Associate Curator Carlos Mínguez Carrasco of the New York-based Storefront for Art and Architecture, bringing the first ever Storefront International Series to Asia and Hong Kong. As part of the Storefront International Series: Hong Kong (Storefront IS Hong Kong), a public ideas review for Design Trust Futures Studio, our new flagship programme conceptualized by Co-founder and Executive Director Marisa Yiu, will also be held on 8th July.

Storefront International Series: Hong Kong (Storefront IS Hong Kong) is a three-day series of events that take place in contested sites across the city of Hong Kong. Events seek to address the nature of urban public life, and to highlight the challenges and opportunities faced by Hong Kong residents. Local and global agents from various fields present and discuss their ideas and observations about various places within the city, bringing to the forefront a larger conversation about the cultural and physical landscapes of the region. Storefront IS Hong Kong aims to go beyond social, disciplinary, and ideological boundaries, breaking established lines of division to produce spaces of collective thought, reflection, and ultimately, action.

There will be live-streaming and public events throughout the city from the 7th-9th July, so join us to celebrate innovative art, architecture, and design that transcends geographic, ideological, and disciplinary boundaries.
