Inspired by the iconic autonomous chair system of Peng Chau, where people best utilise the public space for their varied activities, ‘Connecting Table’ is a modular table system made out of bamboo with the craftsmanship of zit zaat (paper craft). The work will allow people to explore more possibilities to use their public spaces. It is derived from two disparate customs on Peng Chau: the traditional zit zaat and the existing self-evolving commonality of chairs.
Meanwhile, the versatility of ‘Connecting Table’ will be explored throughout the Festival, as it will provide a platform for other activities such as workshops or swap events!

Dialogue: Species of spaces
Spaces of encounters or spaces of appropriation; how can we define public spaces? Joshua Lam (HKPSI) and Géraldine Borio will discuss their respective interpretations and how it influences their choice of intervention with urbanist Sampson Wong. Exchanging with the audience, they will draw on the similarities and differences between Cheung Chau and Peng Chau, highlighting the power of people in the making of spaces.
Using the public space and a specially-curated installation as location, the dialogue will be an experiment in itself showing the flexibility of islands’ public spaces in hosting a variety of functions.
- Joshua Lam, urban planner, Hong Kong Public Space Initiative (“Encounter Cheung Chau”),
- Géraldine Borio, architect, Borio Lab (“Connecting Table” & “Zi Zaat Architecture”),

Island Life: Discovering the History & Everyday Beauty of Peng Chau
Peng Chau island is less than one square kilometer in size, but it contains endless layers of Hong Kong history and life. In fact, Peng Chau was a bustling island before Hong Kong was founded! We'll visit its temples, farms, the community of its original "seui seung yan" fisherfolk, and explore the art installations and small business projects started by the more recent thirty-something creatives and bohemians who have recently settled in this gentle, welcoming and diverse community. We'll also see a bit of the island's rugged natural beauty and grab a local snack or two.

Cheung Chau Wave
When we board the ferry to Cheung Chau we travel both physically and in our minds. This new online project curated by Cheung Chau Wave 浪長洲 aspires to augment and compliment the experience of the passengers, residents and visitors alike, by making a simple offering of artwork specially crafted for the journey.
What if, putting social media and tv aside for just a minute, we are reminded to look out the window and notice the world floating past whilst, for example, listening to a poem by a local artist? How can we bring art into our everyday, switching us into the present, and maybe even go sailing in our imagination?
