Chan School of Public Health; Min-Liang Tan, the co-founder of Razer; Freeman Lau, the designer and co-founder of KL&L Creative Strategics; and Design Trust Futures Studio, led by co-founder and architect Marisa Yiu.

The city’s largest celebration of art and culture returns for its 50th iteration, bringing together commissioned and original works across the realms of theatre, music, dance, visual arts and more. Aside from a slew of international items available for online viewing, among the not-to-be-missed in-person pieces are the international premiere of Laila, a stunning immersive interactive opera experience fusing AR, VR, 360-spatial sound and more, co-produced with the Finnish National Opera and Ballet; Dance Opera: Love Streams, inspired by the poetic texts of Chinese female writers Xiao Hong and Xi Xi; and We Are Gay, a new Cantonese drama on lust, loyalty and ambition by playwright Candace Chong and director Tony Wong.

Spring has sprung at K11 MUSEA which presents a festive celebration of love and new beginning by transforming into an English estate, the HOUSE OF MUSEA, adorned with larger than life strawberry artworks by Brooklyn-based Korean artist Stickymonger which challenges our perspective on uniqueness and originality. Take a romantic stroll through the pop-up garden reminiscent of the traditional English Royal gardens and take part in the many workshops such as live oil painting, flower arrangement demonstration and cocktail hat making.
