Intro

Joy Again, Isle

Looking to the south from Sai Kung Town, the Sai Kung Hoi is surrounded by Sai Kung peninsula, Kau Sai Chau and Clear Water Bay peninsula. With the natural barrier of the studded isles and the natural inlets, the waterways of Sai Kung Hoi is calm all year round. Rich in natural ecological resources as well as historical and cultural heritage, many places in the Sai Kung Hoi, such as Yim Tin Tsai, Sharp Island, Kau Sai Chau and High Island, etc., are popular for visitors during holidays.

Since 2019, Tourism Commission has organised a new three-year pilot tourism project in Yim Tin Tsai, namely the Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival. Through collaboration amongst local and non-local artists, youngsters and villagers, the Arts Festival has turned the island into an “open museum”, bringing a new and unique travel experience integrating arts, religion, culture, heritage and green elements to participants.

Upon completion of the Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival in 2021, some artworks showcased have been retained at Yim Tin Tsai as exhibits for visitors’ appreciation. To leverage the successful implementation of the Yim Tin Tsai Arts Festival under the pilot project and sustain its momentum to showcase the unique culture and the valuable natural ecology and heritage of the islands in Sai Kung District, another three-year Arts Festival, namely Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival will be launched later with Yim Tin Tsai as the centre and reaching out to Sharp Island, Kau Sai Chau and High Island. The Arts Festival will diversify the tourism offerings and enrich local and non-local visitors’ experience, blending the rich history, local culture, heritage and natural environment of Sai Kung Hoi with Hong Kong’s creativity and arts atmosphere.

Curator’s Message

Hong Kong, formed by islands, has evolved our unique culture, religions, geology and social practices in harmony with nature. Art, as a medium, is a reflection of our lives which brings us on a journey of discovery and healing.

During this 3-year Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival, aside from our base at Yim Tin Tsai, participants can further explore the old and the new of Sai Kung Hoi at Sharp Island, High Island and Kau Sai Chau through different art installations and public programmes. With the theme of《Joy Again, Isle》, we wish that the isles can be the place where people meet, connect, begin and enjoy their journeys to experience the healing power of arts and nature.

We invite you to join us in appreciating the creations of the isles, villagers’ stories and creating your unique joyful arts experience at Sai Kung Hoi!
