Fan Lok Yi is a curator and artist based in Hong Kong. She is the Curator of Make A Difference Institute.

A recipient of M+/Design Trust Research Fellowship 2018, she has been investigating on the historical development of Hong Kong’s 20th-century playscapes in relation to the global playground movement. Curated projects include To Kwa Wan Food Hall (2018), Kwai Tsing Daily@West Kowloon (2016 – 2017), Affordable Art Basel! (2014 – 2015), Umbrella Terms (2014 – 2015) and Tin Shui Wai Topology (2014).
