The joys of life are sometimes best illustrated by simple drawings. Creative works by children are showcased at the latest “Art in MTR” exhibition entitled “Commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of JCI Harbour’s Flagship Project – The International Children Drawing Contest cum Photography Competition”. The works cover diverse themes such as “Move it Move it” and “I Have a Dream” with illustrations capturing everything from sports such as windsurfing and ping pong to dream homes for families, animals and toys.
Organised by the Junior Chamber International Harbour (Hong Kong), the exhibition displays winning entries in the drawing competition from 2014 to 2018. The contest which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year has helped raise public awareness about a number of social issues including marine protection and racial harmony.
“Children will be masters of our community in the future. The JCI Harbour competition not only encourages kids to unleash their artistic talent, but also express their ideas about issues that will matter to them and the society at large in the future,” said Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of the MTR Corporation.
