About the event

Fishers' Pleasure Sharing Session


At the early stage of the project, artists Kinchoi and Jess went on field visits with the project research team and local fishermen to learn about the livelihood of the fishing community. The islanders’ stories have inspired Kinchoi and Jess, leading to the creation of the South Lamma Slang Dictionary. Kinchoi, as well as Dr Wong Wai-ling and Teresa Chan from the research team will share the anecdotes associated with the everyday lingo embodied in the dictionary. We will also be screening a short video on purse seining for the first time!
