Please see attached for details concerning the event and the exhibition.
In Fall 2014, Hong Kong experienced an unprecedented civic uprising in their struggle for democracy. A series of student-led walkouts and sit-ins in protest of a legislative proposal by the National People's Congress of China to assert control over Hong Kong's electoral system had escalated into a massive civil disobedience that came to be known as the Umbrella Movement. One year later, people of Hong Kong continue to fight for their future. The Exhibition features photos, arts, musical performance as well as film screening which serve both as a reflection of the Umbrella Movement and a projection of Hong Kong's continuous struggle for democracy. A new song written to commemorate the anniversary will be debuted at the opening night musical performance event. Please join us on September 20th in our commemoration of this historical moment.
