Workshop

Come speak some local Water Dialect!


Cheung Chau Wave

Did you know the names ‘Hong Kong’ and ‘Macau’ come from Water Dialect水話 (seoi2 waa2)? With hundreds of years of history, Water Dialect is spoken by the Tankas or 水上人 (seoi2 soeng6 jan4) “on-water people” – indigenous fishermen and boat dwellers from the Southern coasts of China.

Come learn some local Water Dialect and Cantonese, and practice with the sampan drivers and fishermen. In this collaboration, Sarah Yip from Eco Cheung Chau/Floatudio works with the local fishing communities in Cheung Chau and Hong Kong’s neighbouring islands, and Tiff Chan’s intuitive method Chantoneasy® enables tonal languages to be spoken by visually and physically associating all words with musical notes.

Encounter Cheung Chau: Dak Haan Yum Cha


Hong Kong Public Space Initiative

In Cheung Chau, an island with looping roads and alleys, you will eventually encounter friends and peers when you are wandering for long enough. Wherever people are encountered, ad-hoc, mobile public space/realm is temporarily formed, particularly under the comfort of authentic nylon shade. Islanders’ everyday life as social process then forms organic, free-flowing public space.

Inspired by the Cantonese greeting “Dak Haan Yum Cha” when people encounter, literally meaning “let’s grab a tea when you are free”, mobile tea pavilion realises the common saying into spontaneous place of interaction anywhere on the island. The mobile pavilion is modelled after Cheung Chau’s authentic way of transit – bicycles and local wisdom of nylon shade for homes and restaurants, resembling islanders’ fluid public space usage and catalysing people’s spontaneous public life.
