Remain present: the act of collective creativity in Hutong is a workshop-collaboration between artists and locals living in Hutong. Participants will collaborate together, working with concepts such as time, creativity, traditions, ephemerality, memories, instability and future.
Some locals and artists will be creating together a series of photographs with disposable cameras by inhabiting the area, exploring in their memories and taking action in the present in order to document their feelings. What would you like to remain for the future?
