PMQ is hosting Hong Kong’s annual art and design festival deTour from now until December 6th, and the event has so far been jam-packed with events perfect for foodies. The theme of this year’s exhibition is “connection” and many food-focused exhibitions and demonstrations are aimed at raising awareness for social issues and to engage the local community with these issues.
The exhibition include creative events such as “Taste Library”, which allowed foodies partake in workshops as well as to utilize the kitchen cook their favorite dishes and create tasty connections with friends and family.
The “below and above” feast, which is a collaboration between the Taste Library and #thepovertyline exhibition, allowed foodies to engage in a feast that follows a strict budget of 12 dollars for each person.
The event capitalized on the cause of the Poverty Line initiatives, highlighting the problem of food wastage in Hong Kong. Finally, the event “We are on the Same Plate” allowed foodies to interact with different ceramic artists from around the world, and exchanging plates and ideas of the diversity of food cultures.
From now until December 6th, the festival will be hosting an exhibition between PMQ and local charity Food Angel to present a site-specific installation The Poverty Line. The installation sees a collaboration between photographer Stephen Chow and economist Hui-Yi Lin, which allows visitors to actively engage with the issue of poverty around the globe. Be sure to visit PMQ this weekend to learn more about the issues raised in this year’s deTour festival!
