    Speaking on Hong Kong cultural change with wit and charm

    As part of the OUHK Distance Learning and Part-time Programmes Info Day, renowned public intellectual and columnist Mr Chip Tsao, ‘The First Wit in Hong Kong,’ was invited to give a talk on ‘Hong Kong Culture in the Past 15 Years.’ In his talk, which attracted an audience of over 340 people, he made use of his unique perspective on Chinese and Western cultures, based on over 16 years of experience living in the UK, to discuss some of the cultural changes that have taken place in Hong Kong since 1949 by reflecting on its history, political, social and economic development. He also reflected on his own rebellious childhood, during which he only believed in things that had been proven, though he is now used to looking at things from many angles. He concluded his talk by emphasizing the need for counter-intuitive and distinctive ideas in order to stand out in today’s society.
