About Freedom Ball

Freedom Ball questions whether the Hong Kong government controls the use of public space for the benefit of Hong Kong people.

We do this through simple and striking interventions in public spaces which encourage the public to engage directly with activities which are currently banned in the space.

The principles of our interventions are that they challenge the rules in a way that is positive and engaging and encourage the public to join in actively.

Our aim is to change the way that public spaces are managed, designed and controlled so that they meet the needs of Hong Kong people.

自由波向政府質疑: 政府控制公共空間的使用是否有利於公眾利益。

我們通過在公共场所舉辮一些簡單而又引起大家矚目的行動:鼓勵公眾直接參與一些仍然被禁的活動。

這些行動的宗旨就是: 大家用正面而又有趣的形式鼓勵公眾積極投入這類活動,挑戰僵化規條。

我們的目的在於改變公共空間的設計和管理模式, 最終能符合香港市民的需要。

Yellow Banners!

One of the issues that came up at the LCSD Workshop was those horrible, huge, yellow banners in parks. Everybody hates them, including senior management in LCSD apparently, but nobody seems to know how to stop them appearing so in order to help and encourage the LCSD in their efforts to eradicate the yellow banner disease we're going to start a league table for yellow banners. Next time you're in your park, count how many yellow banners there are, tell us the name of the park, and we'll put together a league table of the best and worst parks when it comes to yellow banners.

Post as comments her or at the Facebook Groupand we'll pull the league table together.
