This year’s benefiting charity is the Society for Community Organization (SoCO) – ArtWalk’s donation will benefit their pro-active community work, original social policy research and advocacy work.

Says ArtWalk Organiser and art critic, John Batten. “Join the energy of ArtWalk! For one night, Immerse yourself in Hong Kong’s art scene by walking and visiting Hong Kong’s leading galleries, meeting new friends and viewing additional art installations along the city’s streets. This year we encourage participants to visit Aberdeen and its rising arts district by offering a cheaper ticket option.”
