Heritage Stamps Design Competition

Southern District Arts and Heritage Project

'Arts and Heritage Project' is sponsored by the Southern District Council. The project has three upcoming activities, which aim to enhance students’ understanding on heritage and history through arts.

1. Heritage Stamps Design Competition

The competition will pick 10 famous heritages or historical buildings from the Southern District. Students will design the stamp for the heritages and the stamp should show their character and appearance. The deadline of submission is 4th December. Students may submit through mail to Room 918, 9th Floor, Youth Square, 238 Chai Wan Road, Chai Wan, Hong Kong or email to info@wfwp.org.hk (in .jpg file less than 1MB) before 4th December, 2015.

2. Heritage and Art Tour

The second activity is a heritage art tour to be held on the 19th December. Our organization will bring students by coach to visit the heritage sites directly and the students will learn to create some art works such as sketches, photos, poems or essays during their visit.
