Liberatum, the International Festival of Culture, Set to Kick Off in Hong Kong
Liberatum Hong Kong, the International Festival of Culture in collaboration with Carrera and the British Council, is bringing together from April 27-29 international cultural leaders, creative minds and acclaimed artistic icons to Hong Kong to be connected with their counterparts in Asia.
Carrera presents Liberatum HK expecting that the program improves the reputation of Hong Kong as a cultural city and gives tribute to Hong Kong's cultural heritage. It will present an ambitious and original program, which will aim to place Hong Kong firmly at the center of the international cultural scene in 2012.
