Your Love Persists: The Postcard to Express Your “Organ-donation” Wish

It’s always not easy to express your wish as organ donors with your families. A postcard with purposeful design can help. The Task Force on Organ Donation Promotion Chater has organised a postcard design competition with an aim to raise the awareness of organ donation. The winners were recognised at a luncheon talk cum prize presentation ceremony on 11 April.

The competition has drawn a positive participation with over 100 design works received from alumni, fellow students and staff. Congratulations to alumna Ho Wai-man (Communication) who has won the champion with a cash prize of $6,500. In addition, alumnae Tan Yun (Communication) and Chiu Wai-chung (Environmental Conservation Studies) also received merit awards.

To further reinforce the organ donation “3S” message: “Sign-up”, “Speak-out” and “Spread-out”, a guest speaker from the Hospital Authority has also shared with the audience some facts and cases about organ donation at the event, together with the launch of a video produced by the Task Force on Organ Donation Promotion Charter.

Highlights of HMW Festival

The HMW Festival 2017 organised by the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing has come to fruition. The kick-off programme was the Lyric Class Concert 2016/17 of Dr. Chow Yiu-fai entitled “Bodies to Spring”, which was successfully held at AC Hall, HKBU on 25 February.

Two workshops which encouraged alumni and students to sweat out were held in March. On 2 March, alumni and students had a chance to at the same time experience Yoga, Latin Dance and Performance Art through the workshop “Get Your Body Moving”. On 25 March, HKBU students met All Black FC, Hong Kong’s first football team made up of refugees, at a workshop entitled “Football as a Common Language”. Using football as an ice-breaker, students experienced first-hand how sports can facilitate interaction and debunk prejudices.

The closing event was entitled “The Body of Literature X Imaginative”, in which students shared with participants their "imaginative snacks" inspired by literary works, such as Mu Shiying's "The Statue of a Golden White Female Body" and Angela Carter's "The Company of Wolves".
