“Reverie and Action: Embracing
Humanistic Spirit in Urban Revitalization”


Haw Par Mansion

Project Description:

Co-organised by Urban Renewal Fund (URF), Hong Kong Arts Centre and Hong Kong
Architecture Centre, The URF 10th Anniversary Thematic Seminar are held on 22 and 23
October (Fri & Sat) 2021, at Haw Par Mansion. Titled “Reverie and Action: Embracing
Humanistic Spirit in Urban Revitalization”, the two-day event consists of sections of forum and
collaborative learning workshops aiming to break through from the existing framework of urban revitalization and bring about ground-breaking ideas, and to explore how art relates to urban renewal and revitalization projects.

Description how the project contributes with humanity:

The Thematic Seminar invites leading practitioners from private and public sectors both locally and around the world to share experiences on their roles and creative practices to steer changes within the regulatory policy framework in urban revitalisation development, and to engage the community for constructive dialogue and participation throughout the planning and design process towards a sustainable and inclusive public space in old urban areas.

On top of keynote sessions, there are panel discussions, talks and collaborative learning workshops for cross-disciplinary participants who are interested in urban regeneration, civic engagement and community building, to facilitate idea and experience exchange, and to facilitate inspiration and imagination on public space and the city. Other activities also include

guided tours of Haw Par Music and Via North Point respectively, where participants have hands-on experience of these two heritage renewal and old district revitalization projects.
