Part of Des Voeux Road Central, one of the main avenues in Hong Kong’s downtown core, was closed off to its usual vehicle traffic for one day — from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., 25 September 2016. The initiative, called Very DVRC, was co-organised by Walk DVRC, the Clean Air Network (CAN), Hong Kong Public Space Initiative, and curated by Very Hong Kong. Civic Exchange was a supporting organisation of this initiative.
A public space was created for art, sport, culture and environmental eventsÂ over a 200-metre segment, from Man Wa Lane to Morris Street in Sheung Wan. This was possible thanks to a temporary traffic arrangement by the Hong Kong Transport Department.
