A Ride on Our Harbour

Exhibition Period
Mar 10, 2023
Exhibition date and time
Fri to Fri, 4:30pm - 7pm
Exhibition Place

The exhibition ‘Hitch a Ride on Water’ takes the definition of an island as an entry point, and examines how the water establishes the trade activities and thus the developments of an island. How Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour came to define the city since its opening as a port city? What is the significance of the Victoria Harbour to this city and the people here?

Co-organised by WMA and the Society for Hong Kong Studies, the ferry tour ’A Ride on Our Harbour’ aims to provide the most direct and first-hand experience to feel the pulse of the City and to understand the often neglected parts of the Harbour. ‘Walking’ from the streets to the sea, the author of “Hong Kong Walking Studies” and urban researcher Sampson Wong will also share his ways to observe the city from the perspective of water, and the various collective memories associated with different phases of reclamations.

The ferry will depart from the Central Pier, sail to the west of Victoria Harbour, cross the Stonecutters’ Bridge and bypass Tsing Yi for the return journey, which lasts for 2 hours. We look forward to exploring this city by hitching a ride on water with you.
