Since 2016, Chi-yung has lived between Hong Kong and Europe in order to create and curate cultural exchange projects with several European art organizations, such as the Theatre of Liege, Belgium, West Kowloon Cultural Authority, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Zurich University of the Arts, ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Artists-in-Labs Program (Zurich) and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
