notice I didn’t say exhibitions. Exhibitions  here are often dull as dishwarter in my opinion….. due to the fact most people in Hong Kong care little about culture, and the government caring even less….

However, do keep an eye out, for shows and events here, as they do occasionally have some good stuff there! A case in point are the 2 events below (actually see here they do have more talks, if you can speak cantonese or mandarin chinese). These are both saturday afternoon talks in English there. I hope you can make it-  enjoy!!
