Taipa Village Cultural Association, in partnership with the British Council and the Macao Digital Photography Association, presents the Dream with Love Campaign, with the goal of raising social awareness of the underprivileged and disabled community in Macao.
The Dream with Love campaign consists of a series of art-related events and activities set against the rich cultural backdrop of Taipa Village. They include the renowned 11 Million Reasons exhibition, conceptualized by UK organization for community dance, People Dancing, and presented by the British Council. 11 Million Reasons is complemented by a Macao photography series consisting of The Harmony Collection and The Dream Collection, which reveal the beauty and authenticity of disability art. The campaign is centered on the keynote of “Art in Unity” and includes special performance sessions by speakers from Macau Autism Association, Macau Deaf Association, the Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong, as well as other individuals who will share their experiences in tackling disabilities.
In addition to the photography exhibition, Taipa Village Cultural Association will present a keynote and performance event to amplify the message of social inclusion. Community service centres such as Macau Autism Association, the Macau Deaf Association, the Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong, as well as individuals including visually-impaired Ivy Kok and local Macao singer Romeu Choi Assis will share their own life experience, and will provide comprehensive talks dedicated to the disabled. This aims to encourage the local community to foster positive attitudes and banish unconscious biases against the disabled, and to educate the community about their immense potential.
