just before the opening of 1600 Panda Exhibition at PMQ.

Unsung Heroes Behind 1600 Pandas

Over a thousand volunteers were recruited within 2 days, who worked tirelessly to make
the various 'flash mob' art installations possible, rain or shine. On many occasions,
volunteers had to get up at wee hours to start installing the 1600 Pandas as early
as 4 am. Many were totally drenched working under scorching sun and torrential rain.
Similarly for all the working bees including the PR and creative team.

PMQ Ready for 1600 Pandas

The heritage-listed PMQ (former Police Married Quarters) is Hong Kong's new
hub for the city's blossoming creatives. This was the site of Central School,
the colony's first government secondary school which was attended by Dr Sun
Yat Sen, father of the Chinese Republic after overthowing the Qing Dynasty
in the 1911 Revolution. The school evolved into Queen's College of today.

PMQ is gearing up for the 1600 Pandas exhibition starting 25 June to 17 July
to spread the gospel of conservation, creativity and sustainable development
with the opening on 24 June. Stay tuned for more Panda Mania...
