Our core activities

NEXUS events are at the heart of what we do. We run a regular and active series of meetings both online and face-to-face where we explore belonging - and belonging in Hong Kong - from a range of perspectives.

What are NEXUS events like?

The events are led by interesting people from a range of backgrounds. Some are academic, where researchers and research participants report their findings and discuss with us what they might mean - for example our event with Jan Gube from EdUHK. Some work we discuss straddles academia and creative practice, such as our event with Christine Vicera, founder of the be/longing project. Some are less traditional in feel, more conversational and interactive, such as our HKUST student-led open dialogue and an open forum with Narrativesbyus, both led by groups and organisations actively involved in challenging established conceptions of what it means to belong in Hong Kong.
