The Remarkable People – Naked Dialogues

 

“Together We Stand – Conserving Kaiping Diaolou”*

 

“I am quite busy but I have no pressure.  I’d rather do less with more patience and concentration.”  — Jinhua Tan                           

 

Just before Christmas in 1983, he was handed the key to the old, disused Dairy Farm Central Depot, and for the past 35 years he has been revitalising it into a vibrant contemporary arts space.

 

He is Benny Chia, the Founder of the Fringe Club.

 

In 2002, she pursued further studies in the United States, travelling from city to city to collect stories of overseas Chinese and the Kaiping Diaolou.  She then returned to her hometown and spent eight years with her team applying to UNESCO for the addition of the Kaiping Diaolou and Villages to the World Heritage List.

 

For the past 10 years she has worked on the Cangdong Project, dedicating herself to preserving the tangible and intangible heritage of Cangdong village by cultivating heritage conservation and community empowerment.

 

She is Jinhua Tan.

 

On July 8, Jinhua Tan will conduct her first-ever Naked Dialogue with Benny Chia.

 

Speakers:

Dr. Jinhua Tan (Conservation Leader of World Cultural Heritage)

Mr. Benny Chia (Founder of Fringe Club)

Date: 8 Jul ( Sat )

Time: 3:30 - 5pm

Venue: Fringe Upstairs

“Conserve No More”*

 

“I am a cat person.  When I retire, I’d like to stay in a place like Sham Shui Po, where life goes on, abundantly and resolutely.” — Lee Ho-yin
                                                                                                              

“For me, the alcoves in the back alleys of Hong Kong are remarkable places, where you have your 1m² of privacy for 10-15 minutes.”  — Michael Wolf

                                                                                                             

From Hong Kong’s back alleys to corner houses, from earth gods to 100-square-foot homes, Lee Ho-yin and Michael Wolf have done four crossover collaborations.

What common belief brought them together?

Conservation?  Is it really necessary?
