2nd Macau Ocean Culture Festival

After a well received debut in 2017, the Macao Ocean Culture Festival is back this year with a series of cultural activities to celebrate the city’s history as a port and its maritime traditions. The program includes two walking routes in the Inner Harbour area as well as an interactive shadow-puppet performance ‘Uncle Sea and his Recycling Shop’. The festival also features an Ocean Book Reading Club that has compiled a selection of 30 books about maritime life in the city. There will be eight readings on the topic during the festival.

Last but not least, there will be interactive workshops held on how to create glass ornaments or musical instruments from the materials that are likely to be salvaged during the International Coastal Cleanup Day, a fun and environmentally friendly event!

‘What Are You Thinking?’

Have you ever thought of using a visual gateway to discover the power of stories? ‘What Are You Thinking?’ is the first ever solo exhibition by Un Chi Wai, a talented Macau illustrator. The exhibition showcases a self-published children’s picture book comprising creative illustrations that interpret the psychological phenomenon of daydreaming- an everyday pleasure shared by both children and adults.

The exhibition has a minimal approach, and the storyboard of this beautifully illustrated picture book has an open ending subject for the reader’s own interpretation and imagination which is what makes it so entertaining and dynamic, transforming the district into a lively centre of cultural and creativity.

‘What Are You Thinking?’

Date: Now- 30 September

Time: 12-8 pm

Venue: Taipa Village Art Space, 10 Rua dos Clerigos, Taipa, Macao
