We are fundraising for the Nepal Earthquake Emergency Relief.
A mega earthquake measuring Richter scale magnitude 7.9 struck Nepal with epicenter in Lamjung District (north-west of Kathmandu; south of China border) on 25th April 2015. Thousands of lives have been lost leaving the rest homeless. All the funds raised will go to the charity SUNSHINE ACTION who is taking immediate action to provide emergency support to people in the affected areas. 100% of the funds will turn into food, water, blankets, shelters, medicines and other necessities to the victims.
You will be invited to our charity concert on 1st May 2015 at Artouch if you donate HKD200 or more and transaction is completed by 30th April. This fundraising campaign will open till 26th June 2015. Please support today!

Even though it has been set up for less than a year, over 20 music events, several art exhibitions & culture events like film evenings , handcraft evening , tango dance lesson, yoga gathering etc. have been organized in the light to provide a new source of cultural entertainment and enrichment to the local community. Artouch also cooperates with local NGOs to help raise money and bring awareness through different events.
