Drastic Social is an art and cultural documentary website and community work.
We are creating a community for people to connect and expand their ideas.
Our goal is to encourage the local communities to share their skill sets and resources with each other, by creating projects together, in order to experiment continuously and evolve as we progress.
There are no good or bad productions, all we have to do is to push our boundaries by making and doing.
All we need is to communicate to make more and make better.
It’s time to throw away mental limitations.
We are free to move forward without judgment.
Drastic Social regularly organise community events to develop the bond in our communities, by catalysing and supporting changes among us.
Jane Straley is an Art philanthropist. She founded Artourage Hong Kong aiming to provide a not-for-profit environment for Hong Kong artists and creatives. She encourages us to express our feelings through personal communication and other activities altogether in the art community.
Artourage Hong Kong is an Art social hub where exhibitions, workshop, gathering and mentorship are happening at three Artourage locations in Hong Kong.
I am honoured to be a part of this collective, where I can contribute my time and skill to create the online space for all of us.
Fashion styling and design has been a deep passion of mine since childhood, I remember flipping through countless high fashion magazines as a teen and something sparked inside of me when visually I was met with so much joy.
However, being a plus size kid and young adult in the 90s and 2000s certainly did not give me any material to express myself through style and fashion. I had to DIY alot with my existing baggy clothings.
Modern plus size fashion did not exist until 2010, so I grew up being oppressed by the fashion industry only wanted to create things for my counterpart straight size humans.
I started Curvasian.com in 2008, I wanted to write about plus size fashion resources for my community of people over a US size 4 in Hong Kong and Asia.
Since 2011, I have been working with Easy Connect as my full time employment.
From merchandising, to sales & marketing, to product development, to today taking on the role of Digital Marketing director.
Since November 2017, I have been developing the company’s e-commerce website where I build the product range for Hong Kong market and create all the marketing content for the website in 3 languages (English, Mandarin and Cantonese).
Hi, I am Bertha Chan.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, now residing in Norway. I create work and connect communities between Hong Kong, Norway and Austria throughout the year.
