Rooftop Institute

Rooftop Institute, founded in 2016 by three artists from Hong Kong, is an artist-run, charitable organisation dedicated to advocating for ‘art learning as a way to engage the social’. Originating from the idea of the ‘rooftop’ as an alternative space of communal learning in Hong Kong in the mid-1900s, its mission is to develop a series of imaginings and practices around the concepts of space, community, learning and exchange. Rooftop’s evolving programme is intended to develop artist-led educational programmes and researches: they invite Asian and local artists to conduct artistic research and discussions on contemporary social and cultural issues.
