Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum organises a special exhibition entitled Hong Kong’s Maritime Miracle: The Story of Our City since 1945. It defines Hong Kong’s miraculous rise from the ashes of World War II and the maritime foundation that was vital in remaking the city, in a selection of 25 representative exhibits. Hong Kong’s pre-war maritime connections facilitated her growth of an enormous global manufacturing powerhouse after the War. Containerisation in the 1970s was a key component to continue and build on this success and Hong Kong’s container trade volumes grew exponentially. When Mainland China opened up its economy in 1978, Hong Kong then outsourced much of its manufacturing into the Greater Bay Area whilst retaining her lead in finance and services. The maritime trade continues to support the growth of the Greater Bay Area, with Hong Kong at its heart.

The “Journey for Integrity” Experiential Exhibition cum “Integriteering” (portmanteau of “integrity” and “orienteering”) is the debut of ICAC’s first-ever Signature Event. Based on the concept of “Journey for Integrity”, it comprises a series of engaging activities and attractive exhibitions seasoned with new technologies and interactive elements. The event will provide an occasion for members of the community to reflect on the anti-corruption history of Hong Kong, and to understand the evils of corruption and the rule of law. “Journey for Integrity” has a two-fold meaning. On the one hand, it refers to the journey the public has been partnering with the ICAC in fighting corruption since its inception. On the other hand, it also represents each individual embracing the value of integrity in their life journeys and upholding a clean society together with the ICAC. Tai Kwun, the historic Central Police Station Compound where the Central Magistracy was located, is chosen as the venue of the event because it witnessed the first trial of Peter Godber’s case which led to the establishment of the ICAC, and the successful conviction of which had earned the trust of Hong Kong people.

Nezha's story may resonate with one and all, but it is the tale of every man as an individual. His Legend is our collective story, which epitomises the solitary path we all journey on as we race to seek and find where our souls truly belong. Growing Up: Discovering his own identity;Self-Sacrifice: His ultimate choice in the face of fated conflict;Rebirth: A new lease of life - transformed by love and loneliness. It is love that allows one to grow, even when one stumbles and falls. Love is support from family and what helps sustain us during times when one must endure alone. When one has mastered loneliness as an inextricable quality, so does one's love expand and become a ceaseless pursuit. Embrace Solitude, and in turn, be Embraced by Love.

The photos were taken by three photographers. In the order of their Hong Kong work they were: Hedda Morrison, Lee Fook Chee and Brian Brake.
