About Peer to Peer: UK/HK

#PeertoPeerUKHK is a digital programme and platform encouraging meaningful cultural exchange and forging enduring partnerships between the UK and Hong Kong’s visual arts sectors. 

The programme launches with an online festival of international exchange and collaboration taking place 11-14 November, curated by independent curator Ying Kwok.

The Festival will include an online exhibition of digital artworks from UK and Hong Kong based artists, including 5 new commissions by artists nominated by UK and Hong Kong based partners. There will also be a series of digital residencies taking place across partner organisation’s social media channels as well as a set of curated panel discussions.

Peer to Peer: UK/HK is led by University of Salford Art Collection, Open Eye Gallery and Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA) and consists of a network of contemporary visual arts organisations across the UK and Hong Kong.

The project has been generously supported by funding from Arts Council England and the GREAT campaign.
