As the days grow colder and the nights get darker, it is time to look back over the many episodes in the first term of this academic year that have been a part of your busy and fulfilling university life.
I·CARE Theatre - Glitter in the Gloom
Starting from January 2018, the I·CARE Theatre, co-organised by this Centre and The Office of the Arts Administrator, will bring you a fine selection of films in four consecutive months. These films are put under the theme "Glitter in the Gloom". In each story, the main characters have coped with the ups and downs in their lives by diligence. Although they regard "lovely moments" transitory, they believe the light is always at the end of the tunnel.
