Traces of Human Touch - Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition

"Traces of Human Touch" exhibition, organised by the Intangible Cultural Heritage Office under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department is open to the public. The exhibition is located at CLP Pulse, which has been revitalised from a Grade 1 historic building. Ten items of traditional craftsmanship and performing arts which belong to local intangible cultural heritage (ICH) are showcased in the exhibition to enhance the understanding by the public of the preservation and transmission of ICH.       Despite having no physical form, ICH is an important element for community cohesion. Through oral traditions and practical applications, ICH can be transmitted from generation to generation. Traditional craftsmanship meets the needs of everyday life while performing arts foster a rich and colourful existence. All these give tangible expression to intangible beliefs, etiquettes and customs as well as aesthetic ideas.
