Conserving Heritage Hand in Hand – 20th Anniversary of the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust

Posted: March 4th, 2013 | No Comments »

If you happen to be in Hong Kong I’d suggest popping down to the basement of Pacific Place where the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust has a display about its work and about Hong Kong heritage. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the Trust has created a roving exhibition to be staged at four locations in Hong Kong – it’s at Pacific Place at the moment. The exhibition includes a display of how the early Pokfulam community was formed, why deity boats also take part in the Dragon Boat Water Parade in Tai O, what meanings the ornaments in vernacular architecture carry and what dialects the early indigenous inhabitants spoke, etc. There are also some fascinating objects from the collection of James Wong of everyday ephemera in post-war Hong Kong – books, music, products etc. More details of the exhibit and the Trust here.
