UTSG: Universities Under Siege — A Roundtable Discussion

December 2, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In light of recent events of police targeting university campuses across Hong Kong, we would like to discuss within the Hong Kong context, what it means for not only people, but institutions to be a targets of state violence and repression.

Two recorded interviews with frontline photographers covering the course of conflicts at two universities in Hong Kong (Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Polytechnic University) whose works are featured in the exhibition, will be shared.

We will be holding a roundtable discussion in the form of breakout sessions led by facilitators, in hopes of building dialogue among diverse groups affected by the Hong Kong movement.

This event will mark the beginning of the second part of the Toronto exhibition, which will be available for viewing from December 2nd to December 31st in the 2nd Floor Hallway of Hart House.

The exhibition, “Stand With Hong Kong Journalists”, showcases press photos submitted by 12 HK frontline photojournalists, presenting their accurate, fair, comprehensive and visually compelling stories about the movement. There will also be a supplementary timeline to trace the movement from the start to its current state.
