In a fast-paced world where innovations emerge almost every day, how is our design changing to fit this new era? At Confluence 20+, twenty Hong Kong designers will be offering insights into the latest developments in Hong Kong’s creative industry, how are the relationships evolving? Especially when we consider the design aesthetics, production craftsmanship, commercial outlet – and creative ecologies at large. How can we leverage creatives’ obvious economic and cultural abilities to deliver a sustainable future?

Confluence • 20+ is all about synergy. It is a point of convergence where flowing rivers merge and mix to gain greater momentum. From this point of departure, they continue their journey downstream and disperse to different places. Ultimately, they create the immensity of ocean and lead the tide.
