In this upcoming edition, the festival will contain of two components: five 6-month working residencies and a 1-month long Festival presenting projects born out of the residencies and spanning from urban/rural cultures, environmental conservation, to design and crafts. The festival aims to highlight the distinct environments, communities, histories and concerns of these places, to promote and protect their shared cultures and raise awareness of the invaluable nature Hong Kong possesses. This project is also supported by C.C.Wu Cultural and Education Foundation Fund and Consulate General of France in Hong Kong & Macau.
