The Library moves forward
聲音圖書館往前走

The Library’s application to the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, has recently been approved. This grant enables us to continue with our work in contributing to the listening culture of Hong Kong, and to keep our community of active listeners active.

In the coming eighteen months, on top of thickening our existing programs and web content, we will also present new ones, including:

GUEST CURATION
Lyrics writer Chow Yiu-fai, artist/curator Solomon Yu and artist Pak Sheung-chuen are invited to take an active role in interpreting the existing materials on The Library. Their concept and curation will become a mini-website that could be accessed from The Library.

FEATURE STORIES
Our Feature series on “Sound Professional” continues with portraits of Uncle Ho and Sau Ping, a technician and a worker for the production of the transistor radio in the 1970s. They tell us about their career paths and share their “skill” and “art” of listening.

VIRTUAL VISITS TO ARCHIVES
There are many existing archives in the world devoted to causes of equal right of cultural expression and heritage. Through interviewing some of them, The Library and its users learn and understand ourselves in others’ light.

MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
The Mentorship Program invites experienced artists with a practice of creative sound collecting to meet and share his knowledge with young artist-mentees and the public.

PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Partnering with different organizations who have experience in conducting workshops for people with varying abilities, The Library learns how to make our web content accessible to everyone.

SELF-STUDY CORNER
Further to the on-campus workshop, the upcoming free and downloadable online teaching and self-learning materials is a kit-set for the general public who would like to learn more about sound and listening, as well as to become a sound collector.

SOUND SCOOP
Overseas Sound Scoops co-curated by The Library and invited partners are coming soon. Our next stop in Hong Kong will be Eslite Gallery.
