Hong Kong ArtWalk 2010 – Hong Kong’s premier charity art event – is held on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 between 5pm to 12midnight.

ArtWalk is a charity event and a donation is raised from ticket sales; 2010 is the 10th Anniversary and over the previous years a total of HK$4 million has been distributed to Hong Kong charities. ArtWalk 2009 saw 2,000 participants visit 65 galleries and raise a donation of HK$477,000 (and ArtWalk 2008 raised a record HK$689,000) which benefited the Society for Community Organization (SoCO). Again, SoCO benefits from proceeds raised from ArtWalk 2010 for their pro-active community work, original social policy research and advocacy work. See the SoCO website for further details: www.soco.org.hk

Keeping its successful and enjoyable format, ArtWalk participants purchase a ticket that allows them entry to visit Hong Kong galleries on ArtWalk Night to view an array of artwork as well as enjoy food sponsored by some of Hong Kong’s leading restaurants and wine hosted by each gallery.

Says ArtWalk Organiser, John Batten. “Hong Kong’s art scene is vibrant and strong and ArtWalk remains the biggest one-night art event in town. It is a unique event that celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year. Over 65 galleries will again participate as well as a number of ArtWalk Extra art installations, video and performance events happening around the streets of Central.”

Tickets, priced at HK$430 (adults) and $100 (tertiary students), are available in late February 2010 from galleries situated along Hollywood Road and Wyndham Street, from Picture This in the Prince’s Building and SOHO Wines in SOHO.

ArtWalk is organized by art critic and former gallery owner, John Batten, and assisted by ArtWalk Co-ordinator, Ms Mary Joyce Wong.
