Yip Shuk Man Yaumatei

Local arts and ageing areas have been consistently marginalized in Hong Kong. Gentrification arises, local cultures and communities are diminishing. Yaumatei, as an old, yet centrally located district in Hong Kong, begins to fight for local arts, low arts, public arts, to break the walls between individuals of the area, to gather people with an aim to build a better community and secure Hong Kongese’s identity. “Roam Yaumatei” is going to be an interactive website documenting and promoting how newly emerged experimental art groups and non-profit organizations help produce a more energised and caring neighbourhood, in the city generally considered “Cultural Desert”.
