<![CDATA[Reminiscences: Exhibition of Macau Old Photos ]]>

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT), the Institute invited five renowned local photographers, Ao Peng, Carlos Dias, Kong Iu Lam, Tam Kai Hon and Tong Ka (Au Chi Keong) and to organise the event “Reminiscences: Exhibition of Macau Old Photos", giving the public the opportunity to recall the memory of the past by appreciating the old photos of Macao, and at the same time expecting the future to come.

In the recent years, Macao's economy has been growing and developing very quickly. The urban landscape has also been changing fast. The traditional industries such as fishing, ship building, fireworks which once were in great prosperity have been declining gradually and even ceased to exist. However, the demolition of buildings, the change of the coastlines, and the emergence of new industries have affected deeply the environment of the citizens’ lives. The precious photographs selected for this exhibition were taken from 1960s to 1990s by the 5 above-mentioned photographers. They walked through the streets and lanes of Macao and not only registered the historical change of the buildings and streets with their delicate camera lenses, but also captured wonderful cultural landscapes for life. The precious old photos of Macao in this exhibition are valuable historical materials, in addition to image recordings. Besides, the advanced artistic techniques and the exalted professional spirit of the photographers also deserve our admiration.

IFT has been dedicating to the promotion of Macao’s culture and education. In recent years, in addition to providing consistently courses of culture and creativity, the Institute also cooperated with local artists and organised different kinds of exhibitions, aiming to promote the local creations to the public and integrate the arts into people's lives.

Date: 5 August - 30 November

Opening Hours: 1200 - 2200

Venue: Educational Restaurant & Team Building, IFT 

All are welcome to come and visit.

Magical Macao.

The 2014 conference in this series took place in the remote and windswept islands of Shetland, Scotland. The 2015 conference moves across the globe to the tropical island city-state of Macao, a special administrative region of China and the most densely populated territory on Earth (nearly 600,000 people in just 30 km²).

 

On 23-25 March, delegates will speak with local tradition bearers in Macao and visit sites of legendary and religious significance. The Historic Centre of Macao World Heritage Site – a living mix of Chinese and Portuguese colonial cultural influences – is home to numerous Catholic, Taoist, and Buddhist shrines, churches, and temples. Yet move away from central Macao’s busy markets and winding alleys, and you will come to temples of capital and consumerism: for Macao – called the ‘Las Vegas of the East’ – is also the site of some of the world’s largest and most glamorous casinos, where tourists engage in different traditions of the supernatural.

 

On 26-27 March, delegates will have the chance to give academic presentations in association with the conference The Supernatural in Literature and Film. Presentations will be hosted at the Institute for Tourism Studies.

 

On 28 March, delegates can participate in a post-conference tour of beautiful Coloane Island, Macao.

 

Attendance at the conference is open to all interested individuals.
