The day-long programme allows teachers to take a step back from their busy schoolwork in a relaxed environment to self-reflect and appreciate the details of daily life. It also provides an opportunity for participants to think beyond standard school curriculums and consider new possibilities in contemporary art education.

About the Artist Facilitators:
Luke Ching Chin Wai was known as a ‘pro’ in colour pencil drawing before the age of 18, and was among the best in his class. He was pretty good at seal carving, too. Before the age of 26, he learned to work with mixed media under the tutelage of Chan. At the time, mixed media was categorised as 'others' when one had to specify the medium of an artwork. Before the age of 30, he worked as a teacher of grade 4 students, teaching art and general studies. After 30, he finally learned to swim and cycle, but before he managed to learn to type in Chinese, he got married—which is his lifetime achievement. Before the age of 40, he took an interest in public space in society and the development of a gift economy, hoping to recycle lively art from a lively society and learn from that. After the age of 40, he started focusing on his personal professional development, hoping to become the boss's pet.

Kith Tsang Tak Ping is an educator and farmer. He works in multiple forms: visual art, design, publications, curating, and art and design criticism. Tsang has exhibited internationally, including Gwangju Biennale, Korea; and Venice Biennale, Italy (2003 and 2011). He is the co-founder of Para/Site Art Space, and Sangwoodgoon Farm. He is a volunteer at the School of Everyday Life to promote art and culture, life education, and environment education. He published The Idiot-syncratic Hong Kong Lifestyle of a Professor book series.

She was awarded the Asian Cultural Council (1993) and Institute of International Education Fellowships (1995); Certificate of Commendation from Secretary of Home Affairs (2010); and Hong Kong Women Excellence in the Six Arts from Hong Kong Federation of Women (2013).

She has participated in over 100 local and international solo and group exhibitions. Her works reveal cultural and artistic issues, including city architecture and daily livelihood, conflict and balance, fabrication and reality.
