Tai Kwun Conversations is a series of talks that brings together brilliant minds to discuss the challenges and rewards in pursuing a sustainable future through the active management of heritage resources. Join us at this monthly event to discover outstanding practices in heritage conservation and strike up a conversation with our renowned guest speakers.
This talk will unpack the reuse of two sets of colonial-era historic buildings in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and contextualise the cities’ nuanced relationships with their recent pasts.
The event will be conducted in English, with simultaneous interpretation from English to Cantonese available.
