Intangible culture heritage is people-oriented. Although Hong Kong is a very small place, it is home to variety of ICH items which feature their own characteristics and are closely related to the daily lives of local people, such as dialects, performing arts, traditional festivals, knowledge about nature and the universe, food production and craftsmanship, etc. This lecture will explore ICH items based on viewing old photographs of Hong Kong, in order to enhance participants’ awareness and understanding of ICH items and the history of Hong Kong.
