Lighthouse Memories: Diversity & Inclusion

This event is aimed to raise public interest among Hong Kong’s maritime history through the lighthouse establishments across the region. Using new media technology to document and rediscover these cultural heritage sites, City University of Hong Kong’s Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections (LHRC)’s programme allows students to engage in the history of Hong Kong’s development since the nineteenth century.

Lighthouse Memories is proud to host its exhibition with assistance for visual-impaired guests. Using audio description, this will help to engage a wider audience towards Hong Kong’s lighthouses.
