《let us connect with life through art》 Are you happy? There is an invisible pressure everywhere in a city. Most of us are either overworked or forced to accept the mainstream values. Perhaps we have been brainwashed by fear and become a slave to money. Does this resonate with your heart? Do you long to live a different lifestyle outside of the current system of the society? If the answer is yes, then perhaps you are a starseed. We would like to invite you to join us in cultivating a nourishing phenomenon for all of us who have such feelings. Art and nature have the power to heal. We will together engage in a cycle of creative actions such as exhibitions, performances, art workshops, and healing sessions to nurture our heart and soul.

As a startup social enterprise that focuses on sustainable development, Dreams Lab is curating and organizing an interactive experiential activity “Beyond Sight” with its aim at promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDS 2030) set by the United Nations through creativities. In the face of climate change and man-made disasters, have you ever thought about the sights of the last days? "Beyond Sight: Before the Apocalypse", Dreams Lab’s brand new 4D interactive experiential event, sets in a pre-apocalyptic world. Participants will challenge the six experience zones in the impact of different sensory systems to complete the final mission! We hope that after the event, participants will be able to reflect on the messages behind the experience and take the first step in the world's dream action. In each zone, you need to complete the experience and a specific task before moving on to the next area.

DENTICE, being a portmanteau combining "Dental" and "Service", is established in 2014 by dental students in University of Hong Kong, who are dedicated to serving underprivileged communities by promoting oral health. In the past few years, our scope of service had extended to Hong Kong, mainland China, Cambodia and Sri Lanka communities. This year, collaborating with Cheerful Life Foundation, a Thai NGO providing supports to lower-profile individuals, DENTICE will organize an outreach service trip to Bangkok in the coming summer, providing necessary preventive dental treatments and oral health information to the lower-class children and villagers there through the efforts of dentists and dental students in our team. We hope this project will not only promote oral health awareness amongst our participants, but will also inspire fellow dental students to take the initiative to serve the underprivileged.
