The Juven team is proud to announce that we are an official event partner of PMQ’s deTour 2018 Creative Festival. This year is the 10th anniversary for deTour which marks a milestone for the art and creativity festival.
What is deTour?
Originally launched in 2008 as an event that runs concurrently with Business of Design Week (BoDW), deTour is now curated and organised by PMQ, which is a creative hub located in the center of Hong Kong. Every year deTour seeks to offer a variety of different programs featuring innovative designs to inspire creativity and foster exchange of ideas. Talents featured range from young and emerging creatives to more seasoned creative professionals.
Each year, deTour seeks to go deeper into the thinking process of creation . deTour 2018 will explore the theme of trial and error, contemplating the creational process that takes place before achieving the best results. The creative work may take hundreds or thousands of trials to make. deTour 2018 will prompt thinking about what goes on during the course of artistic practice and to what extent creatives can judge the final work as the best amongst all possibilities.
The exhibitions, installations, workshops and design talks unearth and demonstrate innovative experimentation, original thinking and serving as an invitation for general public to join in discussing what makes good design.
Below are a few highlights picked by the Juven team:
Organized by Mystosis Flower, an online store that mainly provides customised floral goods, the Electroluminescent Wire Sign Workshop will allow participants to make their own “neon” lights. Electroluminescent wire (EL Wire) generates similar effects to neon tubes, but is safer and easier to handle when compared with that.

Flow art emphasises on the fluidity and transformational quality of paint. By skilfully mixing and controlling the ink flow, unique and elegant art pieces can be created.
Taught by Go With the Flow Workshop, participants will learn how to make a beautiful flow art wooden jewelry plate in the one-hour workshop. They also will learn how to mix epoxy colour pigments and the skills of creating different effects — letting art flow with life!
The Hong Kong Association of Art Therapists will run an art therapy session led by 1 to 2 professional art psychotherapists. It will begin with a simple group sharing before taking up art activities to explore the inner world of participants.
Juven has always valued the importance of creativity and good design in creating impact in user experience and satisfaction. Good design is a core value of our philosophy, and we are especially proud that we can align with PMQ and deTour 2018 to showcase good design. The festival starts in early December! Don’t miss it!
Creativity at a new address — PMQ (Former Hollywood Road Police Married Quarters) opened its door in April 2014, providing a platform for local creative talents to showcase their work and creation. This is a place for international creative happenings right in the heart of our city, and a destination for a creative lifestyle experience.
Juven builds integrated organization software that empowers charities, companies, associations and clubs of all sorts to build, engage and grow community. We believe that organizations should have access to beautiful, intuitive and reliable tools to create greater impact.
