Established in 2013 and organised by Justice Centre, the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize aims to harness the power of the visual arts to promote awareness, provoke dialogue, inspire action and bring about change in the area of human rights.
All artworks exhibited and shortlisted for the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize are generously donated by Hong Kong-based artists for our charity auction, to raise vital funds for our work to protect the rights of forced migrants in Hong Kong.
Recurring themes in artworks exhibited and auctioned in previous years include the Occupy movement, homelessness, the plight of refugees, forced labour, ethnic minorities and LGBT rights.
Previous winners have included Filipino photographer Xyza Cruz Bacani; Katie Vajda, for her series on domestic workers in Hong Kong and Ducky Chi Tak, with his piece, 3D Jobs, which deals with ethnic minority and labour rights.
More information about the 2017 Prize is coming soon.
