What do the music playlists of minibus drivers tell us about the public transport vehicle as a community space? Arts practitioner and researcher Leung Ho-yin shares the processes and findings of his fellowship project “Yau Lok, Ng-goi”. The project comprises of interviews with eight minibus drivers about their music choices, work experience and personal stories. Ho-yin invites us to hear the musical world and special stories of the people we see almost every day, yet rarely pay attention to, and hopes to facilitate a discussion on minibuses as a space for shared music experiences.
The West Kowloon Young Fellows Scheme (Performing Arts) supports the development of original initiatives that promote audience building and community engagement. As an awardee of 2020, Ho-yin hopes to connect minibus drivers and their passengers through this interdisciplinary research project.
The sharing session will be conducted online through Microsoft Teams. Registered participants will receive a streaming link for the session with their confirmation email.
