“Can We Hear?” is a music and visual experience journey that allows participants to empathise with the situation of displaced people through the format of "Silent Concert” and immersive music experience.
Originated in Europe, the “Silent Concert” format, requires participants to wear wireless headphones to listen to live performances, insulating them from noises in the surroundings and allowing them to listen with their hearts. This time, our event combines songs, images, sound and visual effects as well as installations to create an immersive music experience that enables the audience to listen to the voices of countless people forced to flee their homes and have a better understanding of their distress.
According to estimates, over 100 million people* worldwide have been forced to leave their homes due to conflicts, natural disasters, or other reasons.
“Can We Hear?” is an engagement event organised by the Médecins
Sans Frontières (Hong Kong) in the form of a Silent Concert. As the finale
of this year's “7.7 MSF Day”, the event carries on its spirit to raise the public’s awareness of the neglected voices and medical needs of the related communities.
