About HKCF

O rganised by Intangible Cultural Heritage Earthpulse Society and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), the fourth edition of Hong Kong Culture Festival, which will take place between September 2018 and February 2019, will join forces with cultural organisations, universities and local communities to present a rich array of programme in celebration of Hong Kong’s culture heritage.

 

Echoing this year’s festival theme “Dialogue / Fusion”, several programs will showcase a fusion of different traditional arts: the highlighted Safeguarding the Community: An Intangible Cultural Heritage New Media Exhibition, will showcase with the aid of digital media, measures taken to defend against wars, famine and diseases during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and how they became indispensable in the South Chinese culture, eventually becoming Hong Kong’s Intangible Cultural Heritage; Joy in Mysterious Music will reinvent Taoist music with extracts of the Four Great Classic Novels; Hong Kong Drum Festival – The 16th Hong Kong Synergy 24 Drum Competition organized by Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra will introduce the Lion Dance Drum Category, followed by a further collaboration with the orchestra at The Drums of Hong Kong concert; Hong Kong Classic Films Retrospective will showcase through a selection of Hong Kong and Hollywood classics, how Hong Kong Spirit was recognised and saluted by international cinema; Heaven and Earth – Contemporary Ink Art Exhibition Featuring Artists from Hong Kong and Inner Mongolia will gather several prominent ink artists and showcase the beauty of the two places through travelers’ eyes and brushes; not to mention another highlight, the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Mart will return for its third edition, presenting three days of family fun events including an outdoor music concert in collaboration with Hong Kong Drum Festival, Hong Kong Dragon and Lion Dance Fiesta, and Hakka Unicorn Dance and Kung Fu Carnival. The festival will be accompanied by a series of workshops, talks and cross-overs with cultural organisations, to explore the exchanges between local and foreign cultures.
