Taking underprivileged children to teamLab to experience the art of light and inspire creativity
HONG KONG, Aug. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Trip.com teamed up with charitable organisation Save the Children Hong Kong to organise the “Illumination and Shadow Adventure” this summer for underprivileged families in Hong Kong, with support from Trip.com’s partner teamLab. More than 60 parents and children, led by Trip.com employees and Save the Children Hong Kong, visited the multi-sensory wonderland teamLab Future Park to experience creative art. The aim of the event is to provide underprivileged families with the opportunity to explore Hong Kong and inspire children’s creativity and imagination through light and shadow art.
To help participants explore the combination of art and science, Save the Children Hong Kong previously organised a light and shadow workshop led by professional instructors. Parents and children learned how to use light and shadow elements in their handicrafts, showcase and appreciate each other’s work. Art can help to strengthen children’s mental health as children are able to express emotions and alleviate stress through handcraft works, ultimately fostering positivity, creativity and confidence.
During the visit to teamLab Future Park, both children and parents immersed themselves in an interactive art space through diverse art installations, exploring the concept of “co-creation” through creativity and engagement. Unleashing their boundless imagination, everyone enjoyed the freedom to collaboratively build and shape a “Future Park” with others.
The visit to teamlab Future Park marks the second event in partnership with Save the Children Hong Kong, and Trip.com remains committed to providing meaningful lifestyle experiences for the less privileged members of the community.
Eddy Yip, Product and Marketing Director, Hong Kong and Taiwan and Hong Kong Territory Manager at Trip.com said, “Following the success of last year’s Christmas celebration, we are delighted to collaborate with Save the Children Hong Kong again. Together, we aim to extend our efforts in bringing more low-income families to explore the wonders of Hong Kong and experience the joy of travel. We are also grateful for the support from our attraction partner teamLab. At Trip.com, we are committed to giving back to the society.

teamLab (f. 2001) is an international art collective. Their collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, and the natural world. Through art, the interdisciplinary group of specialists, including artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, and architects, aims to explore the relationship between the self and the world, and new forms of perception.
In order to understand the world around them, people separate it into independent entities with perceived boundaries between them. teamLab seeks to transcend these boundaries in our perceptions of the world, of the relationship between the self and the world, and of the continuity of time. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity.
