Exhibition: Reading Hong Kong

Inspired by what Hong Kong has to offer, the late literary giant Ya Si (Leung Ping-kwan) captured the cosmopolitan vibes of the city with his poetry and led youngsters to reflect on city life. During March to May 2014, “Reading Hong Kong” arranged a series of activities inspired by Ya Si’s poems, including poem workshops, photo-taking workshops and cultural walks. This Exhibition showcases the poetry and photography of more than 40 participants of different backgrounds through the most heart-felt images that portray the city and urban life of Hong Kong.
