Sense the Art, Fence the Passion - Tactile Art Exhibition

Outside Chiang Chen Lecture Theater (LT-J), HKUST

Sports can help to build and foster a community and unite people, so can art. People with different abilities or backgrounds have equal rights to enjoy sports and art too.

Co-hosted with Beyond Vision International, the exhibition features a recreation of photographs from the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games using three-dimensional materials.

Coupled with the application of the Tactile-Audio Interaction System (TAIS), both sighted and non-sighted persons can explore the world of sports and engage in a multi-sensory visual arts experience - through touch, hearing and feeling.


Co-organized with Gay Games Hong Kong, the program "Sense the Art, Fence the Passion" aims to encourage participants to embrace diversity in our community, exercise mutual respect and understanding to every individual for who they are. Let’s celebrate unity in diversity!

Other events include:

- [28 Mar] Talk: Colors of Life Beyond Sight by Dr Rico Chan, Founder and CEO of Beyond Vision International

- [29 Mar] Fencing Exhibition Match @Atrium
