The BHKS Education Fund sponsored Hazel’s participation in the Made in China Festival in Ghent in 2023 to show arts talent from Hong Kong to local audience in Belgium and to promote the connections between Hong Kong and Belgium.
Hazel Lam is a multidisciplinary artist from Hong Kong and is now based in Belgium. Trained in dance (Manchester), contemporary circus (Sheffield, Turin and London) and music (Hong Kong), Hazel creates visually and conceptually compelling performances in theatre, film and outdoor work with artists employing different media. She devotes herself in conversations and projects that concern equal representation of artists from diverse backgrounds.
