Originally launched to connect artists and curators, Ignite! Hong Kong Art Portfolio Collection has developed into an online platform showcasing the creative ideas and portfolios of Hong Kong artists to a wider audience. The last three open calls for participants saw many local artists and talented creators upload their works and portfolios to the platform, and several of them were later invited to participate in the Sparkle! exhibition series in 2014 and 2015 and other art activities held at Oi!.

Ignite! is launching a new open call for portfolios:
Now with the advantage of three years of experience as well as feedback and advice from users, Ignite! is pleased to announce a new stage of development for the platform – to build an art sharing community enabling participating artists and creators to promote their works and allowing the public to interact with these talented locals.

Share your creativity with us – and help us set course for a new horizon in art!
