Inspired by the ‘Hong Kong Historical Photos from the Frank Fischbeck Collection‘ exhibition at the Main Library of the University of Hong Kong, we will organise two visual tours in collaboration with Walk in Hong Kong this November. Referencing historical images of lives in Sheung Wan in the 19th century from the Collection, our facilitators will tell stories about the sites seen in the images and invite participants to share their own stories and memories about the place.
WMA is honoured to have experts from leading law firm Mayer Brown to give a webinar about Intellectual Property Rights on November 11th, 2020. Please click here for more details and reserve your spot.
Our coming WMA Open Talk, titled ‘Family Albums: the Private Memories and Social History’ explores family albums, a kind of image archives that everybody would be familiar with. Family albums are personal memories filled with emotions. They are records of the daily lives of a family. However, they are also a reflection of a cultural identity and social history. Some may say that they are also a vehicle of the ideologies and power relations of different times.
