12 overseas artists and 12 Hong Kong artists took part in Hong Kong's first International Artists’ Workshop (HKIAW), hosted by The AiR Association Limited in the heart of old Wan Chai.

HKIAW is unique in its choice of venue, Wan Chai, large parts of which are being redeveloped. The participating artists were encouraged to respond to the specific history and aura of Wan Chai. The organizers involved local shops and restaurants, and artists gave slide talks in venues around Hong Kong, including the Hong Kong Arts Centre. To further facilitate this, HKIAW worked with St. James’ Settlement, the project co-presenter, in a number of outreach activities.
