Open Up Tuen Mun @ West Kowloon
Co-organised by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and Tuen Mun District Council, with Active Concept as the programme partner, "Open Up Tuen Mun @ West Kowloon" will be held on 24 March 2019 at the Art Park of West Kowloon Cultural District.
As one of the earliest settlements, “Tuen Mun” appeared in history even earlier than “Hong Kong”. It was home to many fishermen, and was developed under the New Town policy into a modern, major residential area. It has remained an important town of transport hub, and is part of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge connecting the region.
"Open Up Tuen Mun @ West Kowloon" is a community engagement event that aims to explore the long-standing traditional culture and present the regional characteristics, art and culture of Tuen Mun from the perspective of past, present and future.
There will be three thematic areas at the Art Park, namely “Village Culture”, “The TM Community” and “Creative Wonderland”. Various art groups and stakeholders from Tuen Mun have engaged in this community event to present a wide range of wonderful programmes, including
1. TM Vlog – Video Exhibition;

Fa Pau is a traditional cultural symbol of New Territories walled villages. The Fa Pau Exhibition Hall in Tuen Mun Tin Hau Temple Plaza also features this traditional craft. The project has invited the local paper-crafting master Mr. Kenneth Mo to guide students and elderly from Tuen Mun District to make three Fa Pau with a height of around 3 m. They will be exhibited in the theme area of "Village Culture" during the event.
Moreover, there will be a Fa Pau parade together with the dragon and lion team around the Art Park to let the audience experience the traditional culture of the fishing village.
