snapshots of children programme

Hong Kong Heritage Museum has launched "Social Harmony Project: From the Sky above the Museum-for a Better Tomorrow", through which the museum hopes to forge a close partnership with non-profit-making social service organisations that care for members from different communities and schools that serve under-privileged groups, in order to provide a platform for them to take part in arts and cultural activities.

Social Harmony Project: New Experience in Dunhuang Music

In association with the exhibition "The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: Digital Dunhuang- Tales of Heaven and Earth"

Dunhuang was an important city on the ancient Silk Road and a vital point in East-West communication. Music-related images recording the development of Chinese music are found on murals in over 200 caves at Dunhuang.

The drama features the stories of three directors of the Dunhuang Academy, leading students into the world of the Mogao Caves, as they learn about its history, development, and artistic and cultural value. During the performance, the magnificent collection of artworks of the Mogao Caves will be introduced to enhance the students' understanding of the cultural value hidden within the caves.
