Revitalized from Grade 3 heritage buildings, The University of Chicago Hong Kong Campus is a regional hub for ambitious research, education and collaboration since it opened its doors in 2018. The Mount Davis site was originally part of Jubilee Battery, which formed part of colonial Hong Kong\'s eastern coastal defence system. After World War II, it was occupied by makeshift housing for refugees before being converted into a British Army Royal Engineers’ mess and quarters. From 1961, it became the Victoria Road Detention Centre under the Special Branch of the Hong Kong Police Force. Recently, paying homage to the site’s history and former occupants, the unique architecture was revitalized into The University of Chicago Hong Kong Campus we see today.\r\n\r\nJoin our guided tour through the heritage Campus buildings Blocks A, B and B Annex, the preserved exterior of the battery and the magazine, as well as heritage trails. The campus design features adaptive reuse strategies to create a new, modern educational facility, while integrating with the preservation of the heritage site.

Asia Society Hong Kong Center is proud to support the screening of the documentary – Wai Sing, produced by Mr. Kessay Chan. He is no stranger to Asia Society Hong Kong Center, as he had performed with his loopstation for one-man a cappella in numerous occasions for the members. With his passion of singing, he is bringing us his first self-financed documentary about A cappella in Tin Shui Wai.\r\n__________________________\r\n\r\nAbout the documentary - Wai Sing\r\n \r\nA cappella\r\n– a kind of music which involves no musical instruments but human voices only\r\nTin Shui Wai\r\n– a city which is formerly known as “Sadness”\r\n\r\nIn recent years, an actively growing A cappella music scene is spotted among adolescents in Tin Shui Wai. One may wonder: “how could such an uncommon type of music possibly become popular in a community where music was not quite appreciated in the first place?” \r\n\r\nThrough interviewing and documenting the lives of four young A cappella music lovers from Tin Shui Wai, Wai Sing discusses how adolescents can learn and grow through this unique musical world and thus introduces this “human-voices-only” music to more locals. \r\n\r\nProud to be a Tin Shui Wai resident, the four youngsters wish to be heard not only as individuals but as a city, a city of Possibility and Love.\r\n__________________________\r\n\r\nAbout the documentary director – Kessay Chan\r\n\r\nBorn and raised in Tin Shui Wai and with a passion to promote A cappella to the Hong Kong community, Kessay, who is an A cappella singer, arranger, sound engineer and coach, decides to work on a self-financed documentary project “Wai Sing” to share about the lives of four youngsters and their passions for A cappella in Tin Shui Wai.\r\n\r\nSince his secondary school years, he already won a few titles from the World Contemporary A cappella Competition in Taiwan, Hong Kong International A cappella Contest School division, Student Of The Year 2014, etc. He is currently studying in the Music Department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong with a full scholarship awarded by the Home Affairs Bureau through Multi Excellence Scholarship. During his study, he won the 12th Gatsby Creative Award in Music category and represented Hong Kong to compete in Tokyo. He also won champion of the A Cappella Championships 2018 Loopstation Category held in Singapore.
