deTour 2017: A 10-Day Festival Celebrating Creative Expression
1 December, 2017 - 10 December, 2017
Hong Kong’s most anticipated cultural event returns once again this year with deTour 2017, a 10-day festival celebrating creative expression, set to take place from 1 December to 10 December at PMQ, the heart of Hong Kong’s creative community.
deTour has been described by CNN as “one of the most exciting events on Hong Kong’s cultural calendar”, and every year the event runs concurrently with Hong Kong’s Business of Design Week (BODW).
Kicking off with an opening ceremony on 30 November , this annual 10-day festival showcases Hong Kong as an international creative hub, featuring interactive installations and exhibitions from some of the best designers in Hong Kong and all over the world, as well as workshops and dialogues from the most forward-thinking minds in the industry. People of all ages are invited to deTour 2017 to participate, learn, and create together.
The innovative work of more than 20 groups of designers will be displayed at deTour 2017, such as a visually-captivating 14-meter-high interactive LED wall from Hong Kong-based design collective “Bloom”, a jungle of giant paper seeds sculpted by artist Pauline Yau, a fantasy racetrack designed by floral artist Jennifer Chung, and a series of “graphic concrete” designs contributed by nine industry heavy-hitters.
The 10-day festival of deTour 2017 will allow the public to appreciate and experience the creative process through a series of unique and interactive installations, exhibitions, workshops, and dialogues. At deTour 2017, visitors can experience a creatively stimulating trip through the modern world of art and design, one that engages all five senses, all in one place.
