To conserve the traditions and diverse cultures coverage, Wan Chai Livelihood Place would like to draw the public attention on the regional and cultural conservation through diverse and interactive ways. Since 2007, the Place has held more than 20 exhibitions on local culture. And, we have trained Wan Chai inhabitants as cultural tour-guides to lead community tours in Wan Chai and Central, also they started to provide English tours since 2010. More than 6,000 participants have joined community tours over the past four years. In 2011, the “Community Classroom” was launched to bring a break through to the traditional top-down and vocational skills-based learning approach. They invited traditional craftsmen, young artists, organic farmers and housewives as instructors to pass on the culture and craft skills of the old community.
It cooperates with different partners to host a wider variety of community cultural activities including: 1) public exhibitions, 2) community-guided tours, 3) arts and culture promotion activities, 4) workshops, 5) record and publishing, 6)Research on community histories and cultures, so as to help the public develop more in-depth discussions on the community and cultural conservation topics.
