The Leisure and Cultural Services Department/ Art Promotion Office are coming up with some great projects lately, here is another one.
Grandpa Grandma Memory Boxes is an exhibition of works created by a group of senior citizens suffering from visual disabilities, and some with early dementia, and six Hong Kong-based visual artists: Hazel Chiu, Lina Har, Evelyna Liang, Mak Siu-fung, Wong Wing-fung and Bellini Yu.
The exhibition will open tomorrow at the Visual Arts Centre and will move to i-dArt from 25 October onwards.

As per request yesterday at PechaKucha - yes you can still buy Grandma Grandpa Cook.
Grandma Grandpa Cook is a joyful photographic memorial to grandmas and grandpas, and their contribution to the cultural history of food in Hong Kong. Rich with childhood memories, and illustrated with Michael Wolf's photography, the authentic stories of over 40 grandparents tell of love, food, family and society. Alongside the stories, recipes for traditional Cantonese dishes like carrot and green turnip soup, taro in ginger and brown sugar, and sticky rice dumplings, are presented as a gift to future generations, in an optimistic and celebratory book that aims to prove that every dish is a story of life.
