LCSD to present "Artist Enoch Cheng's Project: An experiential tour 'TO ARRIVE'" to celebrate 60th anniversary of Hong Kong City Hall
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will present a programme entitled "Artist Enoch Cheng's Project: An experiential tour 'TO ARRIVE'" on May 28 and 29 (Saturday and Sunday) to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Hong Kong City Hall (HKCH). Combining an audio guide and an on-site exploration experience, this experiential tour allows participants to embark on a unique journey at HKCH, inspiring them to imagine both the past and the future and enriching their experience of present times. The programme is free of charge and pre-registration is required.

     The tour starts with a predetermined assembly point, and participants are required to follow a digital audio guide to walk around HKCH and its adjacent public areas, immersing themselves in the history, culture and architecture of this iconic building. Unlike an ordinary guided tour, this experiential tour focuses on the personal experience of city life, allowing participants to have the opportunity to take a slow tour of HKCH at their own pace and in line with their interests in the Central district, the bustling heart of the city, reminiscing about the past in the light of the present while looking forward to the future.

     Enoch Cheng is an independent artist. His practice spans moving image, installation, dance, events, theatre, performance and curating. Concerned with the everyday subtleties in contemporary urban lives, his works explore recurrent themes of place, fiction, memory, time, migration and more. Cheng received his master's degree in creative writing at Goldsmiths, University of London, and has lectured at the Hong Kong Art School. He is a recipient of the Award for Young Artist at the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards, and was an artist fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.

     Each session of "Artist Enoch Cheng's Project: An experiential tour 'TO ARRIVE'" lasts for approximately 45 minutes. The programme is now open for online registration (www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/hkch/60A/tour.html) on a first-come, first-served basis. Successful registrants will receive an email with details of the assembly point of the tour. They are required to follow the instructions to download the pre-recorded audio file (Cantonese and English versions are available) in advance, and bring their own mobile devices or smartphones and headphones on the day of the tour.
