"Discovering Treasures from the British Museum" Lecture Series

Several scholars and experts from various disciplines will host the lectures. From their different perspectives, they will use the exhibition and exhibits as a springboard to explore the development of global culture and the various stories behind the cultures.

(I) Lecture: Viewing World History through the Collection of the British Museum "A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum"

The British Museum has selected 100 groups of exhibits from its vast collections and displayed them in chronological order in the exhibition "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum", allowing visitors to explore the life and experiences of the people in the past. These representative exhibits are from different eras and regions: from rare survival tools that our early human ancestors relied on to credit cards that are commonly owned by modern people nowadays. The exhibits are concentrated pieces of world history, recording the power of observation and creativity of human beings at different periods of human history.

In this lecture, the speaker from the British Museum will share with the audience the curatorial concept of the exhibition. Through the stories behind different exhibits, the speaker will explore the footprints of human development over the past 2 million years and discuss with the audience how the development of civilisations has changed the world.

(II) Lecture: Exploring the Development of and Exchanges between Chinese and Foreign Cultures through Ancient Artefacts

During the past 100 – 200 years, expedition, archaeology and art history research have revealed new objects and added new ideas to our understanding of the ancient world. Cultural developments around the world have various origins. Different cultures have their own manifestations of work and tools, such as metals, ceramics, silk and writing. While their origins were quite separate, the interactions and collisions between different cultures have resulted in a fusion of cultural phenomena. This lecture will explore cultural developments and exchanges in China, the South China Sea, Southeast Asia and Europe, and inspire visitors to consider different ways of acquiring new knowledge.

(III) Lecture: Humanity and Culture: Understanding World Civilisations through Historical Artefacts

We can discover the wisdom of human beings and the ways they found to survive throughout history and around the world by studying the objects they created. Artworks demonstrate their sense of aesthetics and taste, and some objects reveal their myths about spirits or death, or their spiritual pursuits. We can also learn about our ancestors' pursuit of knowledge and power, reflecting the development of human civilisation and the concept of global networking. From multi-faceted perspectives and supplemented by selected artefacts from the exhibition, the speaker will discuss the development of world civilisations and shared human concerns.

"House of Dreams" and "Under the Starry Sky: An Explorers' Camp" Education Zones (Thematic Gallery 5)

In tandem with "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum" exhibition, Hong Kong Heritage Museum has set up two education zones in Thematic Gallery 5: "House of Dreams", for young children, and "Under the Starry Sky: An Explorers' Camp", for teenagers. In these zones, young visitors can learn more about the exhibits and the stories behind them through interesting settings and interactive programmes.

House of Dreams

For this exhibition, "Dr Sweetdreams" has transformed her personal bedroom into a multimedia interactive learning zone, providing a comfortable environment for children to learn about world history and cultures. Children can sit under a simulated moon, hugging a soft pillow, while reading all sorts of children books here; or they can showcase their wisdom and creativity, by drawing and participating in treasure hunts. Dr Sweetdreams will also be here on certain days to tell fascinating stories related to the exhibits with the participants in the "Bedtime Stories" children's programme.

Under the Starry Sky: An Explorers' Camp

This special zone, with a desert camp under the starry sky as the theme, is designed for visitors to read journals of The Cultural Exploration Team and check out their objects in the camp, where visitors can learn about the selected exhibits under different topics and the stories behind them. The camp also provides books about human civilisation, world history, culture and other topics, allowing readers to join the explorers on their journey of cultural exploration in a relaxing environment.

 

"Bedtime Stories" Children's Programme

Inspired by "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum" exhibition, "Dr Sweetdreams" has created interesting children's stories and will share them with children in her House of Dreams. In addition to leading the children on a journey from ancient civilisations to the modern world, Dr Sweetdreams will guide them on a discovery of the secret codes of the exhibits through interactive games.

In response to the exhibition theme of "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum" and to connect it with local history, we have created a novella, titled A Day in Time – 1935 Hong Kong, Illustrated with 100 Period Objects, featuring a one-day story using 100 sets of period objects with Hong Kong history as the backdrop. We have also turned the novella into a giant 3-D book for display in the museum's Thematic Gallery 5, showing some of the scenes from the story, complete with multimedia and interactive installations.

"The Curio Studio" Education Zone (Thematic Gallery 5)

Hong Kong Heritage Museum has converted a section of Thematic Gallery 5 into "The Curio Studio", featuring scenes from the novella A Day in Time – 1935 Hong Kong, Illustrated with 100 Period Objects in a brand-new deductive way. The scenes include 100 sets of Hong Kong period objects, covering clothing, eating and drinking, transportation, livelihood, and other everyday items – all as they were used on a day in 1935. This zone has been transformed to transport visitors into the story by means of a giant 3D book, with a 1930s Chinese home, an old photo studio, a street, and a Mid-Levels mansion. Visitors can immerse themselves in the story, wandering through the nostalgic scenes, and visiting a home and a street in pre-war Hong Kong. The multimedia devices in this zone give visitors an audio-visual sensory experience that is akin to being in 1930s Hong Kong.

 

The Old City Today: A Tour Back to the 1930s

The museum will invite a Hong Kong historian to act as the city guide, travelling with the participants through time and space to return to old Hong Kong in 1935. The veteran historian will lead the participants to experience the route of the characters' activities in the story A Day in Time – 1935 Hong Kong, Illustrated with 100 Period Objects and explain the history of the places and associated objects along the way, to explore experiences and memories of old Hong Kong.
