A Collaborative Dialogue on M+ Community Pilot Project—'L Community'

How can museums connect communities from far and wide to create an uplifting society? The M+ Community Pilot Project—L Community is a collaborative initiative with artists and social service organisations that aims to foster deeper connections within communities through creative means, encouraging far-reaching museum experiences.

In this dialogue, M+ Curator of Learning and Engagement Gigi Leung will join hands with artistic and community partners to reflect on the project over the past two years: What have we achieved as a group? What challenges have we faced? How can we reimagine new opportunities across disciplines and practices?

This free event, held in Cantonese, will be moderated by co-founder of Mobile Co-learning Karena Tang. We welcome those from the field of social services, or those interested in cross-disciplinary collaborations to join. Click on ‘Register’ to sign up.
