Lizzie Bee Foundation Ltd is a Hong Kong registered Charity. We develop and deliver art workshops in which we bring art, artist and community together.
We believe that art and making art can trigger change. Therefore everyone should have access to meaningful art projects in order to promote education, empower communities, enhance lives and encourage positive social impact.
Within this service we provide, we set up the art workshops but also advise other organisations in grant-writing, fundraising and strategic planning.
On this website you can find information about Our Projects but also about other cool stuff in and outside Hong Kong.
