The University of Hong Kong’s HeForShe gender initiative and the Peel Street Poets group will join hands next Wednesday in an open mic night to support the beleaguered Flow bookstore.
At Lan Kwai Fong’s Orange Peel, there will be singing, dancing and poetry performances focusing on gender issues, advocating acceptance and celebrating empowered women.
The night will also feature book auctions and other fun activities.
All proceeds from the night will go to Central’s Flow second-hand bookstore.
The 20-year-old shop was spared from forced closure on Monday morning after receiving a seven-day extension from its landlord to raise funds for paying its overdue rent.
- Date: Wednesday, May 24, 8pm – 11pm.
- Address: Orange Peel, 2/F, 38-44 D’Aguilar Street, Central.
