Tung Wah Group of Hospitals strives to seek and to create opportunities for people with disabilities whilst Treasure Auctioneer Limited is committed in promoting social responsibilities. Under the same principle, Treasure Auctioneer Limited sponsors the “’i’mperfect’ Art Development Programme for Artists with disabilities “ organized by TWGHs. With Treasure Auctioneer Limited well renowned expertise in promoting artworks through its networking resources, organized professional auctions and generous donation , she is determined to enhance public awareness and appreciation of the arts of people with disabilities and to render great assistance in creating opportunities for disabled artists, hence, opening a new horizon for art development of them.
However imperfect in the eyes of the others, people with disabilities, for their diligence and persistence, display their abilities on the art platform through every little step. Their belief: “i’mperfect” , as symbolized by the apostrophe hovering over the word “imperfect” , is the core belief of the project－“i’mperfect” Art Development Programme for Artists with Disabilities.
Since the commencement of the project last year, a group of people with disabilities with passion for art has got valuable experiences and gains.
In addition to receiving a series of trainings in paintings and calligraphy, they also visited a number of artists’ studios, art museums and other heritage in Beijing, which broadened their art horizon and enhanced their knowledge in art. Other than group exhibitions, some of the artists with disabilities also held solo exhibitions in galleries as well as in universities. These exhibitions not only served a way to enrich the experience of the artists but also an arena for them to interact with their audience.
Every November, Treasure Auctioneer Limited will provide a platform to auction the arts of people with disabilities, thereby encouraging self-reliance.
