Leading enterprise and diversified conglomerate Nan Fung Group (the Group) has launched episode III of its fascinating “In Time Of” series of community initiatives. In this episode, “In Time Of” has partnered with The Conservancy Association Centre for Heritage (CACHe), a local organisation that advocates social awareness of heritage conservation, to present the “Manhole Covers Exhibition” at Nan Fung Place in Sheung Wan. The unique exhibition showcases a selection of the city’s manhole covers to encourage the public to discover the history and industrial story of Hong Kong from one of the most common, yet rarely examined, aspects of the urban landscape.
Inspired by the global concept of the Resilient City, the idea behind the “In Time Of” programme is to encourage the public to appreciate and rediscover the intrinsic and overlooked beauty of the neighbourhoods. The programme brings together a diversity of social stakeholders including non-profit organisations and social enterprises to develop sustainable community programmes spanning from culture and arts to social design. The Group hopes to promote greater social empowerment and improve the efficiency of resource utilisation in the hope of creating a more resilient future for the city.
