About Public Hong Kong

Public Hong Kong is an online database project of the Department of Cultural Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong. We introduce you to the various types of public space in the 18 districts of the city, exploring the meanings of “public” as understood by users of the space. Showcased here are audio and video interviews, photographs, links to cultural representations including films and art works, links to archival material, user profiles, and maps.

This is an ongoing project, so watch this space! Contact us if you’d like to contribute ideas or material.




    • Thanks for your interest. Right now, this website is only for the participation of students at Lingnan University, and most of the effort goes into documenting contemporary Hong Kong. We will let you know should the project extend itself to other regions.
