"Fun in ICH" Series – September Event

 

Talk on "The History, Culture and Conservation of Sam Tung Uk in Tsuen Wan" (Hybrid Format)
 
The Sam Tung Uk Museum was originally a 200-year-old Hakka walled house, founded by the Chan clan in Tsuen Wan. It was declared a monument in 1981. In 2016, the museum turned to be a centre for display and promotion of the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) of Hong Kong as well. This talk introduces the origin of the Chan clan,  the founding of Sam Tung Uk and its architectural form and structure. It also covers the connections between the museum and the ICH of the Chinese community in the New Territories, thus providing the participants with a comprehensive understanding of this cultural venue, which blends tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
