Since its launch in 2016, M+ Rover: Travelling Creative Studio has featured an annual thematic exhibition on its tours to local schools and community spaces. This free programme provides a platform for students and cultural practitioners to engage in creative dialogue as they inspire and learn from one another. This year’s programme is designed for primary schools, and it will see M+ Rover visiting local schools from February to July 2020.
M+ Rover seeks to take students into uncharted creative territory. With a cool metal exterior and a warm interior designed by artist Kacey Wong, M+ Rover is like an expedition to a distant planet that explores new possibilities. M+ commissions local cultural practitioners to participate in each edition of the programme, and this year M+ is collaborating with artist Wong Tin Yan. With interactive activities and guided tours of the exhibition specially designed for primary-school students, the programme encourages students and teachers to unleash their imaginations, explore the everyday in a new light, and discover fresh perspectives by learning together.
In previous chapters, M+ collaborated with artist Tang Kwok Hin, photographer Siu Wai Hang, illustrator and comics writer Rainbow Leung, and artist Ng Ka Chun. Through role play, photography, drawing, and the use of everyday objects, the cultural practitioners launched a series of creative and learning activities in local schools and community spaces. These past experiences inform the approach to shaping this latest edition of M+ Rover, as a more accessible project for younger students.
