Event description

Description

To exemplify a city with a thriving creative industry, Hong Kong may not be on top of the list.

True, it is not a field known for receiving thick fundings from the government, nor is it a career path enthusiastically encouraged by family or even friends.

But does that mean... we should stop fuelling our creative passion?

Mustard Seed proudly presents a dynamic sharing session “Finding Your Creative Core” featuring 4 unique Hong Kong based Artist-Entreprenurs to share their journey and experience. Join us for a lively discussion about drawing inspiration from all around us and from within, the process of developing one's style(s), how to seek opportunities (big or small) to fuel your creativity, finding balance between work and play, and most importantly, how to stay sane throughout it all.
