City Gallery's "City Impression@Central" exhibition (with photos)

     An exhibition entitled "City Impression@Central", jointly presented by the Planning Department and the Hong Kong Heritage Project, will be held at the City Gallery at 3 Edinburgh Place, Central, from tomorrow (December 23) until April 4, 2016. The thematic exhibition shows the story of Central District - the heart of our city - in different time periods.

     Speaking at the exhibition's opening ceremony at the City Gallery today (December 22), the Director of Planning, Mr Ling Kar-kan, said, "From the City of Victoria a hundred years ago to a political and economic centre today, Central District has been the heart of Hong Kong. The City Gallery, being located right in the heart of Hong Kong, serves to enhance planning education and outreach to the public by creative means."

     He said that the City Gallery offers the "City Impression@Central" programme series to encourage the public to explore different dimensions of this unique district in different time periods, in a bid to appreciate Hong Kong's past, which has shaped our present.

     The "City Impression@Central"series also ties in with the "Appreciate Hong Kong" Campaign, which encourages people to appreciate and learn more about different aspects of Hong Kong from an enthusiastic and positive perspective. The campaign also aims to unite forces from various sectors of the community, bringing them to work together for the development of Hong Kong.

     Other officiating guests included the Commissioner for Heritage, Mr Jose Yam, and the Director of Sir Elly Kadoorie and Sons Limited, Mr Nicholas Colfer.

     The exhibition is one of the thematic events of City Gallery's "City Impression@Central" series. To tie in with the exhibition, a series of thematic activities including the Family Plastic Brick Model Workshop, Site Walk Central and seminars, will be held to facilitate an understanding of the history of the Central District and related developments.

     In addition, the City Gallery is launching a Facebook page so that members of the public may keep abreast of its latest updates. Members of the public are welcome to "Like" it on Facebook at: (
