HONG KONG SAR – Media OuReach – 5 October 2021 – For its second-year running, the Karen Leung Foundation’s (KLF) powerful health awareness program, The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition 2021, leverages the work of local and international artists to promote awareness and ignite discussions on the well-being of women.
Katharina Reimer, Executive Director of The Karen Leung Foundation says, “The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition is a health awareness program at its core without using the often embarrassing language associated with our core mission. We aim to communicate the message to as many people as possible regardless of race, ethnicity, demographic, or gender. This year, I am delighted to say that with partners such as The Hari Hong Kong, the Soho House, Hologic, and Vox Vanguard to name a few, I truly believe that we can push the envelope even further. Last year, we made an impact. This year, we hope to make a difference.”
This year’s program brings more engagement and diversity.
KLF has entered into a collaboration with renowned The Hari Hong Kong.
“We are pleased to partner with the Karen Leung Foundation on this year’s The ExtraOrdinary Exhibition. It is a meaningful initiative that aligns The Hari’s passion in supporting artistic talents with the worthy cause of promoting women’s health,” says Dr. Aron Harilela, Chairman and CEO of Harilela Hotels Ltd.
