Signboard Stories in Sai Ying Pun: Celebrating Community Spirit and Culture In A Cha Chaan Teng
Why We Recommend it
Set up by heritage concern group streetsignhk, this exhibition showcases signboard installations and more in a newly openend cha chaan teng.
This an extension of streetsignhk’s ‘Old Town Streetscape Projector’, a public installation of 17 colourful lamppost installations that recall stories of old signboards from the exact locations where they once belonged to. The installation was set up with the Hong Kong Tourism Board and Lumieres Hong Kong, and ran from December 2017 to January 2018.
From now until June congteakafe, a cha chaan teng serving up (revamped) traditional dishes and drinks, displays a few of the original signboard installations, along with ‘old town stories’, photos of the installation and its design concept. The exhibition is set up to promote local cultural values and neigbourhood-based community works.
