The Project WeCan Phase 2 Grand Launch took place at Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel on 30 September 2014, with the Consul General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, Mr. Arnaud Barthèlemy, giving a speech after the Founding Patron of the project, Mr. Peter Woo.

The Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau is honoured to be the first Consulate Partner of the project. We will be supporting the T.W.G.Hs. Yow Kam Yuen College for the following year, through various student activities like a visit at the Consulate General, educational events like workshops and meet-the-artist sessions during Le French May, complimentary tickets of performances and exhibitions of Le French May offered to the students, etc.
