This is the best of times, technology has advanced to unprecedented levels; Yet this is also the lowest point, rifts and cracks in society, people drifting away from each other.

[Artist-in-Residence Programme]

In 2016, the University initiated the Artist-in-Residence Programme to create an artistic atmosphere on campus and to elevate student's aesthetic taste. We regularly invite top artists from various fields to reside on campus, create artworks and hold workshops with students.

The programme may last 5-10 days or 1-2 months. Artists will work with or guide students to create or appreciate artworks through workshop or lectures. Artists will also take into account resources available off campus to contribute towards our development.
