Poetry and music have the power to express emotions, create cohesion, and suggest an identity. They have great educative power and are expressive mediums that have highly therapeutic effects on the mind. The Voices of Children is a poetry and music project that encourages appreciation of words and music among children. The project consists of a call-for-poem exercise, a poem exhibition, and a public performance of the music written based on the selected poems. We wish to empower children through creating and expressing, and to experience how music will give another dimension of artistry to text.


Dr Vanissa Law is a composer and curator who is passionate in interdisciplinary art practices


Born and raised in Hong Kong, Law's wide-ranging artistic output covers traditional acoustic compositions to experimental multimedia theatre collaborations. She is the co-curator of a publicly funded two-yearThe Missing Link, a publicly funded two-year project in Hong Kong, comprising a series of arts technology exhibitions, immersive performance, and open lectures. Her doctoral research was on the use of gestures in electroacoustic music, in particular everyday gestures used by musicians and non-musicians alike. Law was granted the Fulbright Research Scholar Award in 2014, and developed the Soft Instruments Project which developed prototypes of electronic music interfaces custom-made for people with developmental disability, who are at higher risk of sustaining unintentional injury in the music making process. Law worked as a Visiting Scholar at Queen’s University Belfast on a project funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
