1st Mission Trip – Macau
Date:
29 April 2019 to 1 May 2019
Aim:

To foster closer collaboration between the creative industries and enterprises of Hong Kong and other cities of the Greater Bay Area, e.g. Macau.

Macau has a unique blend of Chinese and Portuguese cultures and has been proactively developing the design and creative industries in recent years. The Hong Kong Federation of Design Associations (FHKDA) led a group of delegates to visit the Albergue SCM, Regency Art Hotel and the Macau Design Centre, and to see the “2019 Brand Story——Macao Original Fashion Exhibition” organised by the Macau Fashion Gallery. The delegates learnt about the creative projects and heritage conservation work promoted by different local institutions. They visited The Faculty of Humanities and Arts at The Macau University of Science and Technology and also several design companies and studios, such as Chiii Design and The Grey Green, to understand the design education and development. During the roundtable session and networking dinner, they had the opportunities to discuss with local professionals about the potential collaborations between the two cities.
