“From Diversity to Infinity” Festival 2023

09:30am - 07:30pm
All workshops will be delivered face-to-face (Please find each workshop for details)

The festival, titled "From Diversity to infinity" is founded on our unwavering belief in the inherent value and unique abilities of every individual. By embracing, acknowledging, comprehending and supporting diverse abilities, irrespective of one's background or limitations (whether apparent or hidden), we can unleash their boundless potential. Our primary objective is to offer HKUSTers a transformative experience encompassing a wide array of exhibitions, enjoyable events, immersive workshops, and enlightening talks.   


This year, we have incorporated the theme of failure as a crucial element. This theme emphasizes the importance of embracing mistakes and confronting our emotions as catalysts for personal growth. By embracing failure we develop resilience and empathy, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for individuals with both visible and invisible limitations. Let's collaborate to unleash the limitless power of infinity!
