About

ngo dei

The NGO is formed by three founders: Loretta Lau, Jakub Zajicek, and Ingrid Wong. Coincidentally, Loretta and Ingrid traveled to Prague to further their study in Umprum in the same year of 2018. Other than sharing their interest in art, they also both share the same value of Hong Konger identity and hope their love of this small but dynamic city could be known by the public. Three founders are vitally committed to establishing a meeting point for everyone, to be acquainted with authentic Hong Kong lore, and also attempt to connect it with the historical and cultural background of the Czech Republic. They believe this idea can unite people and build up an interactive platform for artists all over the world without boundaries.

Vision & Mission

In 2020, people around the world get used to the new norm of the pandemic, yet this was the biggest boost of unity. Since the number of death raising and the restriction affecting the daily routine, there is a big reflection space for us to rethink about if the normal world works as well as we were willing to believe. Or this big hit on our head is warning us to change, to invert our attitude towards the world and reject being manipulated from the system. .

support

NGO DEI is also supported and encouraged by Czech architect Jan Mayer, and Tibetan artist Chungpo Tsering, who are experienced in running nonprofit organizations, as well as the Linhart foundation will be our co-organization.
