USTeller Program
For Fall Semester 2021, the program will focus on telling the stories along the tramline via social media platforms. 
In this time, we hope that students can channel their creativity and learn how to plan, package and present stories in a compelling manner on social media. A whole day workshop on a Saturday in September will be conducted by popular IG Photographer and Video Creator to equip students' skills and Lecturers from HKUST will also help students to polish their story. Join this meaningful program to dig out more cultural stories of Hong Kong!
