This exhibition is part of the ‘Mapping My Neighborhood Community Project’, organized by HKICON and iDiscover and supported by the Built Heritage Conservation Fund of the Hong Kong Development Bureau. The project engaged local secondary school students, professionals and community stakeholders in a project-based learning initiative that took place in two chosen pilot neighbourhoods: North Point (November 2018) and Yau Ma Tei (April 2019).
The programme aimed to explore and represent Hong Kong neighbourhoods with photography, interviews, creative writing, urban sketching, videography, and other engagement methods.
Hong Kong Institute for Architectural Conservationists (HKICON) is a professional body of architectural conservation practitioners. It was established in 2010 to address the growing need for the protection and conservation of built heritage in Hong Kong.
