Join us to take a look at Tai Kwun and Central in 100 ways.

Tai Kwun’s inaugural exhibition, “100 Faces of Tai Kwun”, immerses visitors into 100 stories, collected from 100 "kaifongs" (local neighbours) and friends in the past two years, in order to explore the history of the Central Police Station compound as well as the myriad intricate relationships cultivated here in the neighbourhood.

Those whose lives intertwined with Tai Kwun come from all walks of life; some are ex-officers and ex-offenders, while others are shop owners and "kaifongs" in the neighbourhood. The rest might have passed by or visited the compound, including photographers, journalists, architects, etc. Together, their stories reveal different facets of Tai Kwun, which represent the heart and soul of this place.

This kaleidoscopic picture of Central and Tai Kwun features illustrations by local artist Flyingpig who has given a refreshing touch to these stories; her book Once Upon a Time in Tai Kwun is published along with the exhibition. In addition, voice actors from Commercial Radio's well-known radio drama "18/F Block C" have been invited to "gossip" about some of these stories about our "kaifongs" to you.

The exhibition venue, Duplex Studio of Block 01, has been transformed into a mini-Central within which visitors will traverse various "tong laus" to meet our "kaifongs". Your journey goes beyond the exhibition — venture out to our dear neighbourhood to create your own story here.
