Despite its advanced modernisation, Hong Kong has many traditional folk cultures, including performing arts, social practices, rituals, festivals, food and traditional crafts, some of which date back to when Hong Kong was a fishing village. Many are not widely known, even in Hong Kong.
Now you can discover Hong Kong’s amazing intangible cultural heritage at this special exhibition with workshops organised by Ming Ai (London) Institute, which marks the finale of Hong Kong’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Festival. The event is also supported by the Hong Kong’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Office, Lee Kum Kee (Europe) Ltd., Crowne Plaza London – the City, British Airways, The Good Earth, and Dumpling's Legend.
The Workshops are free, but registration required. (Workshops details and registration will be available soon)
