Kite has been recognised as an invention in the 5th Century B.C. in China. Gradually it has developed into an important traditional folk art and recreational, family activity. ICP21 has chosen â€śKitesâ€ť as the conference decoration theme, symbolizing fun, freedom, love & harmony in families.
We are delighted to have local artists Mr Yuk Fai Lam, Ms Esther Praise and the team from the Art Building Character Foundation to design a kite art installation for display at the conference. Prior to the conference, we have invited over 100 pre-school aged children and 100 secondary students to decorate their own kites in 3 workshops. These workshops are conducted by the artists and designed to allow our children & youths express their views about parents & families through art. Their unique artwork are now displayed in the conference. On the last day of the conference, 60 parents and children from different communities, including Shatin, Tin Shui Wai and Ap Lei Chau will also join this kites painting activity. Through these activities, we hope to connect parents with their children, strengthen their relationships, enhance their mutual understanding, and ultimately build stronger harmonious families.
