Hong Kong’s flourishing arts and culture scene features at Cathay Ball 2021

Hong Kong celebrating both Eastern and Western cultures and traditions has become Asia’s Cultural Metropolis, according to Ms Emily Mo, Director of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office (Toronto) (HKETO).

Speaking at the Cathay Ball 2021 entitled “Caring Beyond Boundaries” organised by Mon Sheong Foundation, Ms Mo said that “art is also beyond boundaries”. “Just in this year when the COVID situation greatly improved in Hong Kong, our people were able to enjoy an array of performances and world-class events which demonstrate the city’s unique creative flair,” she added.

Ms Mo is delighted to update participants at the event that M+, the first global museum of contemporary visual culture in Asia, will be opened in Hong Kong next week. “Around 1,500 works drawn from the M+ Collections will be presented across thirty-three galleries in the museum,” she continued.

Ms Mo encouraged participants to discover the glamourous cultural side of Hong Kong when they plan their next visit to the city.

Participants of the event enjoyed a short video, entitled "Hong Kong – Asia's Cultural Metropolis", to have a glimpse of the flourishing arts and culture scene in Hong Kong, where an array of performances and events, from Cantonese opera to orchestra, lion dance to ballet, and public art to art fairs are occurring all year round. Besides, a drone video showing an exclusive view of the M+ museum’s spectacular interior, galleries and rooftop garden is being screened at the HKETO sponsored virtual booth.
