Pearl River, Mekong River, Ganges River, River Nile and River Seine are five of the major rivers in the world, where ancient population, civilizations were born and cultivated.
While wars, exclusion, pollution and injustice are happening across these same areas, the artists dig deep into the history and cultures, to explore the wisdom from the birthplaces, to investigate into the challenges today, and to fuse them into a new alternative to deal with our modern world.
The Confluence of Rivers, incorporating stories, myths and legends and arts around the Rivers, connects, creates and celebrates the river tales of the past, present, future and beyond.
Artists from the Confluence of Rivers will share with the local communities in Hong Kong to share the cultural arts from their own countries. A MUST To EXPERIENCE!
