The Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation (J.C. DISI) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) kick-started its first signature event – “10 Day Fest” Social Innovation Festival (27 September 2013) at the brand new Jockey Club Innovation Tower on the university campus.

The ceremony began with a spectacular “Ageless Catwalk” which brought together 17 groups of young local fashion designers to redefine fashion for the silver age.  Some 28 silver age models, including Mr Cheong who aged 89, presented these original outfits on stage.

Following the opening ceremony was a live performance titled “City Inside a Broken Sky”. Led by artist Mr Kung Chi-shing, the show has further livened up the atmosphere on campus.

Evolving around the theme of “Making a change in 10 days”, the first Social Innovation Festival is a 10-day programme filled with activities ranging from live band performances, documentary film shows to creative exhibitions, public lectures and workshops for a wide spectrum of audience and stakeholders.

Through taking part in these exciting and enriching activities, participants are expected to bring potential change to their own community and make a difference in society, no matter how small it is.
