‘Chur’ is the buzzword popular among the local young generation describing hasty, rush and time-pressed, it is a reflection of Hong Kong people’s demand for high efficiency in everything they do. Everyone, be him/her a salary earner or student, has a tendency of ‘chur’ every moment, the rapid tempo and pressure thus arise have gradually become a normal part of our daily life. In view of this, Youth Square will hold a ‘Chur!’ Experience in September to arouse public awareness of mental well-being and positive thinking.
The activity includes two parts. Part one will be held at Y Studio from 5 to 13 September and part two will be held at Y Platform from 16 to 28 September. The activity has invited a number of young artists to participate in the exhibition planning and artwork curation. Inspired by everyday life of the modern urbans, the artworks are created based on young artists’ reflections of what they observed from trivial casual conversations, psychological changes of urban people, conversations deep in one’s heart and the pressure from daily life in an attempt to arouse attention of all to both important and unimportant stories which take place in our city. Stay tuned to Youth Square’s website and social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram) to learn more about the artworks and artist profiles!
In addition to the artwork exhibition, participants can also relax and release stress through participating different zones and workshops in ‘Chur!’ Experience. Virtual Reality (VR) experience zone and interactive games can also be found in the venue, allowing participants to appreciate artworks and learn relaxation techniques at the same time.
