By observation and research, students dig into differnet parts of Hong Kong and write their creative stories. The stories are then passed to the students of Part 2 – “1 + 4 Cell Group” Acting Workshop to rehearse and perform. We believe that through understanding the city where they live in, their sense of belongings can be boosted up.
