Make It Better
From 15th March 2015 onwards, MiB will be run by the Sovereign Art Foundation directly. You can still sign up for for the Saturday workshops through the Handson HK website.
Make it Better is an arts project with children from the Sham Shui Po area. Sham Shui Po is known as one of the poorest areas in Hong Kong.
We were wondering how this effects the children but we also want to give them the experience that they can make a change, however big or small it is.
We started with making art to improve their home environment and will continue with making art for other places such as nursing homes, public spaces, etc. Along the way we also want to evaluate if making art empowers children. Follow our adventures on the website www.saf-mib.org.
Like what you see? Want to do it yourself?
Our workshops are readily available for everyone. We have detailed step-by-step guidelines of how we did it. The only thing we ask in return is that you send us some pictures so we can feature your project on our website. Good deal, no?
Please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
We greatly depend on volunteers. All our workshops are 1:1, this way we can make the workshops a bit more challenging yet safe but we can also give a lot of attention and positive encouragement. Fancy joining us? Please sign up below.
