Last weekend I woke up super early, (around 6am) to catch the ferry from Hong Kong to Macau. I was invited to a meet-up at the Macau Design Centre for the annual Creative Festival.
Portuguese photographer, Goncalo Magalhaes showed a group of us around Macau's urban north district where we all got to discover the local creative scene.
Since 2007, the “Cultural Association +853” has been organizing and promoting an event called “THIS IS MY CITY” which has, throughout the years, evolved into the “THIS IS MY CITY –The Creative Festival”.
The Festival is a multidisciplinary and multicultural event focusing on four key aspects: Creativity, Innovation, Urban Culture, and Technology. It's the only festival in Macau completely dedicated to the Creative Industries universe as a whole, posing as a showcase platform for what is being done, locally and around the world in terms of creative expression.
I'm already looking forward to Macau Design Week 2016.
