Tai Kwun Conversations – Ma On Shan Spirit: Conservation of the Ma On Shan Iron Mine LandscapeTai Kwun – Centre for Heritage & Arts

HKD 80 /one person

The presentation seeks to extend the scope of conservation beyond industrial historic buildings and their immediate environment in the former Ma On Shan Iron Mine to the whole site’s linkage to Hong Kong’s historic socio-economic and technological developments in the evolving regional and international contexts. This approach of valuating industrial heritage conservation provides an enriched understanding of the multi-layers of socio-economic, cultural and political histories of a site, offering unique insights for local actions and potentially valuable experience for other parts of the world.
