Established by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize (HKHRAP) was created to raise awareness and funds for the front-line work of the Centre and has played a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong-based artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. The arts prize offers a platform for the artists to create work without boundaries to magnify the impact and exposure of their stories.
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. Check out the winning pieces in our last event – Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize 2015.
