These Little Corners is a blog for discussing and sharing the arts, culture and leisure activities in Hong Kong with expats who are currently living and working in the city. It is collectively written by a few people who call this city their home.
Hong Kong has long been criticised for its stereotypical image: a hectic and materialistic sprawling city that has little to do with arts and culture. While the criticisms are not completely groundless, do they really give the fairest account of what Hong Kong is and where its values lie? Is Hong Kong really the cultural desert it has often been ridiculed as?
Due to its notoriety of being the "city of claustrophobia", Hong Kong sometimes loses to its Asian counterparts in attracting foreign talents. This is rather unfortunate. However, this is exactly why we are inspired to build this platform which will hopefully show people more perspectives and unveil the lesser-known aspects of the city.
Through our sharing in this blog, we would like to deliver a core message: Hong Kong is not solely monopolised by its urban verticality, because if you look deeper, the city also embodies a cultural depth that may be unknown to some.
