1/ Daily lives of Hong Kong people in the 1940s and 1950s

Date: 2020/1/2 (Thursday) to 2020/5/31 (Sunday)
Time: Library Opening Hours
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library (8/F Rare Book Reading Room)
Description: The people of Hong Kong in the 1940s and 1950s strived to keep alive in the wartime and reconstruct the city in the subsequent years of surging population growth. Their perseverance and courage laid the foundation of Hong Kong’s later prosperity. Showcasing the documents selected from the Documents Collection Campaign, the exhibition sheds light on the city’s days of bitterness and joy during the Japanese Occupation and its aftermath in terms of population change, food supply and its price, housing, transportation, education, leisure and mass media.

1/ Thematic Exhibition – Successful Inscription on the Third National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage: Hong Kong Items

Date: 2020/1/8 (Wednesday) to 2020/4/28 (Tuesday)
Time: Library Opening Hours
Venue: Hong Kong Central Library
Description: This exhibition aims to introduce the four embodiments of indigenous Hong Kong culture - the Jiao Festival of Cheung Chau, the Dragon Boat Water Parade of Tai O, the Fire Dragon Dance of Tai Hang and the Yu Lan Ghost Festival of the Hong Kong Chiu Chow Community that were successfully inscribed onto the Third National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2011. All these four items fall within the definition of "Social practices, rituals and festive events" set out in the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage adopted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). These items feature distinctive individual characteristics and exerting an important influence on the communities. In the current macro climate of urbanisation and globalisation, local cultural events such as these which promote community cohesion as they are handed down from generation to generation, are not only extremely precious, but also are hard to come by in a busy modern city like Hong Kong.
