Project Description

2010 Community Cultural Ambassador

Tin Shui Wai Incident Book - Create Our Own Stories

Succeeding the Community Cultural Ambassador programme run in the past two years, including 2007/08 “Tin Shui Wai in Construction” and “Tin Shui Wai Drama Hub – Hong Kong Stories”, Theatre Space is now going to integrate and enrich the context of the Tin Shui Wai cultural programme. We aim at sustaining cultural activities and setting up a cultural arena within the district. A fun fair will be hosted as a finale of the programme. Workshop students and district groups will contribute to the events to provide cultural and artistic entertainments and hence reinforce district coherence.
