The Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival will start this month, and the Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism Kevin Yeung Kevin said today (8th) that the three-year project is planned by the Tourism Commission and takes "Re-island" as the theme of this year, which not only retains some of last year's artworks, but also adds new works, with a total of 18 artworks on display, distributed in 5 places in Sai Kung Hoi, and provides guided tours and many free activities.
Yeung Yun-hung said on his social networking site that the day before, together with the tourism specialist and the curatorial team, he went to Kau Xizhou to watch some of the works and shoot a promotional video along the way. He also talked to the villagers who participated in the support, and knew that they enjoyed working with young artists to create these art installations, and they were more enthusiastic about the history and life of the local people.
Yeo Yun-hung said that this kind of project that combines tourism, art, nature, living culture and terroir and history does have its own unique attraction and can tell the story of Sai Kung Hai and the villagers. The best way to appreciate the essence of Sai Kung is to experience it for yourself, and urge the public to also visit Sai Kung Hai.
According to the official website of the Sai Kung Hai Art Festival, the event will be held from November 11 this year to January 15 next year. The event is centred on Yim Tin Tsai and builds on the previous Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival to include the neighbouring islands of Sai Kung Hai: Kiu Tsui Chau, Kau Sai Chau and Leung Shuen Wan. The festival will combine the island's history, culture, monuments, natural landscapes and artworks to provide a diverse travel experience for both local and non-local visitors.
