The third edition of InnerGlow will open to the public on January 26, and see the façade of Tai Kwun’s Barrack Block come alive with imagery to celebrate the forthcoming Year of the Dragon. The three-dimensional architectural projections will be on at the Parade Ground every evening until February 14, between 6.30pm and 9pm, except for the first two days of Chinese New Year (February 10 and 11, 2024).

This year, the project will include symbols inspired by Hong Kong’s intangible cultural heritage, such as the Tai Hang Fire Dragon. The programme will expand to the Prison Yard with InnerGlow Searchlight – a mentorship programme for local young talents and student artists. Head to the prison Yard between 6.45pm and 9.15pm to catch the half-hourly shows.

Tai Kwun’s creative and technical partner for InnerGlow is The Electric Canvas — the minds behind many of the architectural projection-mapped spectacles that pulled the world’s focus onto Vivid Sydney. The Electric Canvas has also been working closely with Tai Kwun to spot talent for future productions of InnerGlow to build up Hong Kong’s capability in this highly specialised field.
