It aims at involving young people of mainstream and minority origins to work together to make a change in Hong Kong. With a focus on South Asian cultures, an Indian Culture Workshop was held in 2013-14, a Nepali Culture Workshop in 2014-15, and a Pakistani Culture Workshop in 2015-16. A Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan Workshop is underway.
Mission / Objectives
The aim of Multiculturalism in Action Project is to raise awareness of South Asian culture as part of Hong Kong’s local heritage, and to dispel the stereotypes and misunderstanding that have sprung from cultural ignorance.
