Co-founded by the U.K. registered art psychotherapist Leung Ching Wan, Gigi and Hong Kong documentary director, JC Wong.
We believe artistic creation can be the most primitive and honest expression of one’s thoughts. Creation can bring magical changes to life, unlimited to one’s background, life achievement, or progress.
Since 2018, we offer different types of art therapy services to people with emotional needs individually, at the same we tailor-made group trainings and experiential workshops for various organisations, including TWGHs, Caritas, Haven of Hope, Direction Association For The Handicapped, Lingnan University, Open University, HKAPA, Oil Street Art Space and Hong Kong Arts Center, etc.
By early 2021, we have engaged with over 1000 participants in our services.
Recently SINCE Concept Store was set up in Wan Chai to promote art in the community. Our selection of documentary films, books, card games, and other products addresses mental health issues, life and death education, and disability rights. It is hoped to stimulate people’s reflections and cultivate the public with nutrition beyond mainstream media and traditional education.
We hope to meet you and you are always welcome to share your world with us.
