Dou Chai Arts Society x Hui Chi Sang

Like an archipelago’s chain of independent but self-sufficient islands, Dou Chai Arts Society is formed by several autonomous art parties with diverse specialties. As a co-creating space, its works range from local craftsmanship, arts and culture, to communal education.

Dou Chai was founded by Sam Chan, a Registered Architect who works to promote urban and spatial design; and Fato Leung, an art and cultural project coordinator with a focus on community education.

Hui Chi Sang graduated from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong with a major in Cinematic Art. As a student, his works were selected by a number of local and overseas film festivals, and he has worked in the field of moving images since graduation.
