Get close to mother nature this March as local mental health charity Mind HK organises its sixth annual Move it for Mental Health 2023 campaign. Raising awareness for the importance of a positive mind-body balance, the campaign encourages folks of all ages to take part in completing a total of 30 km in nature from March 1 to 31. 

Starting Feb 6, participants can achieve the goal by taking up their choice of outdoor physical activities, such as walking, running, or hiking along nature trails, coastal walks, or country parks, and uploading their activity record to the Run2gather app. Those who successfully finish the challenge and submit their activity records before April 6 will be given a certificate and a chance to win a special prize, courtesy of lululemon.

To make your steps more impactful, you can also become a #MoveitHK supporter and help raise funds for one of Mind HK's key initiatives, iACT, to support the charity’s efforts in improving access to mental health services for the community. Visit for more details about this meaningful campaign.

Curated by Inti Guerrero and Chantal Wong, and co-presented with Sunpride Foundation, Myth Makers—Spectrosynthesis III is the first major exhibition that shines a light on LGBTQ+ perspectives in Hong Kong. On view from now until April 10 at Tai Kwun Contemporary galleries, the exhibition features over 100 artworks from over 60 artists from Hong Kong and overseas. Together, they address the core notion of 'queer mythologies', inviting audiences to explore contemporary mythologies and practices of the body through new productions, historical works from the 1940s to the 1990s, artworks on loan from the collection of the Sunpride Foundation, along with a publication collaboration with Queer Reads Library.

Aside from the striking artworks that will no doubt stimulate both the eyes and the mind, visitors can also take part in a wide range of programmes and educational events such as talks, workshops, Family Day, and guided public tours.
