Housing Society Photo Exhibitions - Reminiscence of Fond
Memories at Rental Estates in the Past 70 Years
The Hong Kong Housing Society (HKHS) held the Opening Ceremony of its 70th Anniversary Estate Photo Exhibitions today (4 July) at Ming Wah Dai Ha. Among the officiating guests were HKHS Director (Property Management) Ip Kam-shing, Eastern District Council Member (A Kung Ngam) George Lam Kei-tung, local artist and illustrator Prudence Mak, and representatives of Ming Wah Dai Ha Mutual Aid Committees.
This series of exhibitions is one of the celebration activities for the 70th Anniversary of HKHS. Over a hundred old photos taken in the estates were featured at the exhibitions, among which more than half were collected from the residents, as a recollection of the fond memories at HKHS’s estates. On the same occasion, HKHS co-organised a drawing workshop with well-known illustrator Prudence Mak, with the theme of “Create Homes·Revive Communities”. Residents of all ages shared their interesting stories at the estates through creative drawings.
HKHS Director (Property Management) Ip Kam Shing said, “Over the past 70 years, HKHS was dedicated to providing livable and affordable housing for the people of Hong Kong. We hope that the photo exhibitions could share with our residents and members of the public the snippets of life and touching moments in the old times at our rental estates. Other estate activities to share the joy of 70th Anniversary of HKHS include the ‘Art in Estates’ Mural Painting Programme held earlier and the Shopping Promotion Campaign currently in progress.”
