Comic strips lighten up Admiralty MTR station with messages of inclusion

A superhero saving an ethnic minority student from the bullies in her class. A mother with visual impairment crossing the street with her son. Two young women ordering from the “couples menu” at a restaurant.

These are all scenes from some of the comic strips currently showcased at Admiralty MTR station, near Exit B. The exhibition, which runs until the end of September 2019, presents shortlisted and winning works from the “Comics” category of the EOC’s “Generation-i” multimedia competition, launched last year to help secondary students get their creative juices flowing while reflecting on the meaning of diversity and inclusion.

The competition also featured a “Video” category, where students produced short films to speak out against prejudice and discrimination against marginalised communities. Check out the winners with the link below.
