About Freedom Ball

Freedom Ball questions whether the Hong Kong government controls the use of public space for the benefit of Hong Kong people.

We do this through simple and striking interventions in public spaces which encourage the public to engage directly with activities which are currently banned in the space.

The principles of our interventions are that they challenge the rules in a way that is positive and engaging and encourage the public to join in actively.

Our aim is to change the way that public spaces are managed, designed and controlled so that they meet the needs of Hong Kong people.

自由波向政府質疑: 政府控制公共空間的使用是否有利於公眾利益。


這些行動的宗旨就是: 大家用正面而又有趣的形式鼓勵公眾積極投入這類活動,挑戰僵化規條。

我們的目的在於改變公共空間的設計和管理模式, 最終能符合香港市民的需要。

Freedom Ball Posters 自由波海報

Above are the first series of Freedom Ball Posters. I'll be using these to promote the project. The first, small-scale interventions have been really successful and well supported but I want to take the project to the next level which will involve printing up a large quantity of the balls including logo and message and doing larger scale interventions. This will require a much larger team of people and we're looking for help with transportation, more photographers and video cameramen and people to conduct and record interviews. We'll also be looking to get press coverage for these larger scale events. If you're interested in getting involved then leave a comment here or email me at david@davidbiddlecombe.com

以上是自由波海報第一擊。我會用這些海報來推廣本次計劃。第一輪行動己告成功! 雖然規模小, 但反應好,大家很支持。多謝哂! 本人決定本次計劃將進入下一個層面:包括印制大量自由波,波波上寫有標誌和宣言並舉辦更大規模的行動。此舉需要大家支持。我們需要以下各方面的協助:交通工具;攝影師;錄影人員;採訪員等。我們亦要尋求媒體大量報道本次大規模的行動。有興趣参加者請留言或電邮本人: david@davidbiddlecombe.com
