Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The project is co-organized by VolTra and Ta Kwu Ling/ Ping Che Alliance for “Saving Our Home” (Alliance). Rural issues have recently increased public concerns on rural land use strategy (i.e., development and conservation) for the New Territories. Existing habitats in the New Territories are frequently affected by new development plans. The Alliance, founded in 2012, is a self-initiated alliance by Ping Che villagers in response to the North East New Territories New Development Areas Planning supposed by the government. The aims of the Alliance are to protect villagers’ home and culture and to conserve the environment. Mid-autumn festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month (24 SEP 2018). In the 19th century, villagers began performing a dragon dance to stop a run of bad luck afflicting their village. Accompanied by drummers and erupting firecrackers, The villagers made a huge dragon from straw and covered it with incense sticks. They danced for three days and three nights and the bad luck disappeared. More than a century later, their village has been all but swallowed up by Hong Kong’s fast-growing city. But the dragon keeps on dancing. It has even danced its way onto China’s third national list of intangible cultural heritage. The theme of the workcamp is to appreciate the importance of the local village and its culture. They are going to beautify the village, farming with local people and try the very traditional local food, and the most important thing to do is to set up the event of the Fire Dragon Dance during Mid-autumn Festival.

This is the first year that VolTra and Alliance organizes an intense photography related workcamp to capture the beautiful scenery of the rural Hong Kong. Villagers help the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style. Some of best pictures from this workcamp will exhibit in different university in Hong Kong. Other than photo shooting, together with the villagers, we engage the community by beautifying and renovating of village road or houses to renovate their village culture and to explore the possibilities of rural space beyond economic development.
