About the event

Each island has its own rhythm, and ferries play a key role in linking them. Are the islands closed or connected; are connection uni- or multilateral? In a casual conversation, we invite senior ferry operators to talk with history and logistics scholars. Let's pay equal attention to practice and theory. The sharing will take place on the Peng Chau kaito ferry, allowing participants to feel the tidal rhythm of the island.
