Housing heritage visualised in old estates exhibition

An exhibition of photographs and documentary videos of three public housing estates - Shek Kip Mei, So Uk and Lower Ngau Tau Kok - will be open to members of the public from July 12.

The photo and video exhibition will make its debut from July 12 to 25 at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre in Shek Kip Mei. The exhibits will then move to the Park Court of Pacific Place from July 26 to 30, Sha Tin Town Hall from August 11 to 16 and Tuen Mun Town Hall from August 23-30.

To tie in with the exhibition, the Housing Authority will open part of Mei Ho House to enable the public to revisit the lifestyle of the residents half a century ago and appreciate the simplicity in the architectural design of Mark I resettlement blocks on July 12, 18, 19 and 25. During these days, free guided tours introducing the background of Shek Kip Mei Estate and Mei Ho House will be available.

There will also be a session on July 19 where the three photographers commissioned by the authority will share with people their distinct experience in accomplishing the photography projects.

It is free admission for all the activities. More details of the exhibition and associated activities are available at the Housing Authority/Housing Department website (www.housingauthority.gov.hk) .
