Hongkong Post today (September 30) announced that a set of special stamps on "Inclusive Arts" will be released for sale with associated philatelic products on October 15 (Tuesday).
Art knows no borders. We all have the same rights and opportunities to enjoy and produce works of art. The physical impairment of disabled artists does not in any way diminish their passion for artistic pursuits. Displaying remarkable determination and grit, these artists overcome their physical limitation and give full play to their artistic talents in their artwork. Hongkong Post will issue a set of four stamps, featuring the artwork of four local disabled artists, to give tribute to their artistic achievements and to foster an inclusive community.
To highlight the theme of inclusive arts, Braille embossing is used for the first time on stamps issued by Hongkong Post to denote the different denominations.
Official First Day Covers will be on sale at $1.2 each at all post offices from October 2. The stamps and associated philatelic products will be displayed at the General Post Office, Tsim Sha Tsui Post Office, Tsuen Wan Post Office, Sha Tin Central Post Office and Tuen Mun Central Post Office from the same day. Advance orders for servicing self-provided covers will be accepted at all philatelic offices from October 2 to 8.
Information about this special stamp issue and associated philatelic products is available on Hongkong Post's website at www.hongkongpost.hk and the Hongkong Post Mobile App.
