2 June 2022 - Author’s Talk "Cross-Cultural Creation of Poetry and Art"
In the senior assembly on June 2, we were honored to have Miss Natalia Chan introducing us to the cross-cultural creation of poetry and art. "Contemporary poems can travel around." Miss Natalia Chan dropped this comment and led us into the world of modern poetry.
Poetry is not only an art form, but also a bridge across cultures. Miss Natalia Chan uses "Chinese Heroes" as a series of clues to tell us about comics, dance dramas, and the poem "Non-related Accidents" created after the performance. Such cross-cultural creation reminds us that art needs to be experienced and should not be limited by format.
Later, Miss Natalia Chan shared her poems written in 2013 in memory of Leslie Cheung and about the changes in Hong Kong, so that we could understand the power of words. Writing sincerely and expressing ourselves in words create a force that time cannot erase. As young people, we should also use our creativity and imagination to write the world that belongs to us.
